Tibbetts Lumber to acquire D & M Truss

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tibbetts Lumber Co. LLC has agreed to acquire Pensacola, Florida-based D & M Truss Co. The transaction is expected to close later in 2022.

The St. Petersburg, Florida-based multi-location building materials supplier’s agreement is to acquire all of the assets of the single-location roof and floor truss manufacturer.

“Assuming this deal is consummated, D & M Truss’ team and facility are strategic to our existing Florida operations to allow for further growth into Florida’s panhandle, Alabama, and Mississippi; finally propelling us over the Florida state line. D & M gives us a very geographically-significant footprint to complement our existing Central Florida truss production, and the team is experienced, well-disciplined, and extremely respected in the marketplace. This is an exciting growth opportunity and time for us,” said Kyle Hooker, Tibbetts Lumber’s executive chairman.
