GMS Inc. provided an update on the continued execution of its strategic priorities, including platform expansion and Complementary Product growth, with its acquisition of Jawl Lumber Corporation, which provides service to the Vancouver Island market in Canada under the Home Lumber and Building Supplies brand name.

“Home Lumber is a leading supplier of lumber, engineered wood, doors, framing packages and siding, as well as other key Complementary building materials offered by GMS Canada,” said John C. Turner, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer. “This acquisition will further strengthen our ability to serve our customers and provide an opportunity to expand our tools and fasteners offerings to a new customer base, reinforcing our existing market position on Vancouver Island. We’d like to welcome the Home Lumber team and their highly respected brand to the GMS family.”
