CURWENSVILLE, Penn. – Lezzer Lumber, Inc., one of the 50 largest building materials retailers in the country, has acquired People’s Building Supply, a building supply company located in Stockertown, Penn. The acquisition allows Lezzer Lumber to expand its presence into the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas including Bucks and Montgomery Counties, Northern Philadelphia, Western New Jersey and North Pennsylvania into the Poconos.
The addition of Stockertown will be the company’s 15th location, which includes 12 retail facilities, and three manufacturing plants. Lezzer Lumber has a 90-year history as a supplier of building materials throughout Pennsylvania.
“We have been looking to expand into the Lehigh Valley and Eastern Pennsylvania, and the purchase of People’s gives us the geographic foot print we have been looking for. People’s Building Supply has a good nucleus of employees there now, so we’re looking forward to adding a sound management and outside sales team to help support them and provide a great experience to our customers. As part of the acquisition we also purchased an additional 10 acres of property for future expansion. We see this as an excellent opportunity to continue to grow this business and serve the Lehigh Valley.” said KC Lezzer, Vice President of Lezzer Lumber.
Lezzer Lumber has been family owned for 90 years and is currently operating under the third generation of Lezzers.
