R.P. Lumber expands into Iowa

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. — R.P. Lumber Co., Inc., a growing home improvement company with 71 locations, has announced its acquisition of Dick-N-Sons Lumber, located in Blue Grass, Iowa.

“We are excited to enhance and grow our service to the people of eastern Iowa from this new facility,” said Robert Plummer, president & CEO of R.P. Lumber. “The VanDeWalle family have built a great company and we could not be more pleased to welcome the Dick-N-Sons team to the R.P. Lumber family,” he added.
