MIAMI -- US LBM, a leading distributor of specialty building materials in the United States, has acquired Deco Truss, primarily a manufacturer and supplier of structural roof and floor trusses to customers in South Florida and the Caribbean.

In addition to manufacturing all types of truss systems, Deco Truss also provides lumber, decking and roofing materials, rebar, millwork and doors, fencing supplies, tools, hardware, and more to customers.

Deco Truss operates an 8.5-acre manufacturing plant and retail location in Miami and will operate as a unit of US LBM's Raymond Building Supply, which has locations across South Florida, including a truss manufacturing plant in North Fort Myers.

"US LBM is the best partner for Deco Truss to continue to grow and provide more value for customers and employees alike," said Mario R. Espiñeira, Jr., who will continue to lead Deco Truss's day-to-day operations. "Deco Truss has a strong team and is dedicated to manufacturing high-quality products," said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. "They are an excellent, complementary addition to our existing operations in Florida and further expand our manufacturing capabilities to supply builders in multiple growing communities across Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties."
