Local Company Ridout Lumber Thrives After Merging with U.S. LBM Holdings, LLC

Searcy, AR – Local company Ridout Lumber is thriving after being acquired by U.S. LBM Holdings, LLC (also known as U.S. LBM). The merge has allowed the lumber company to cater to a wider audience while maintaining their business’s original vision.

Ridout Lumber was founded in 1971 by Wayne and Homer Ridout. As a family-owned and operated business, the company had a humble beginning. Their reach was local, and, according to their website at https://ridoutlumber.com/, the founders were committed to providing good old-fashioned service.

Throughout the years, their humble family operation saw vast expansion. This was due to their growing reputation and commitment to serving their clients. Today, the company has 12 locations in Arkansas and one in Missouri.

As the company continued to grow, current president Ross Ridout wanted to expand the company’s reach even further. U.S. LBM proved to be a beneficial partner. This top U.S. specialty building materials distributor operates across 29 states.

Bill Williamson and Stephens Inc., Friday, Eldredge, & Clark LLP helped advise Ridout on a deal with U.S. LBM. In 2017, Ridout officially merged with the distributor.

U.S. LBM seemed to be a perfect fit for Ridout Lumber. The distributor is known for its emphasis on local leadership and management. Companies partnered with U.S. LBM are encouraged to establish strong local relationships with customers.

This philosophy allowed Ridout Lumber to stick its core values that made the company so successful in the first place. The additional resources from U.S. LBM helped the company expand its reach even further.

Since the merge, Ridout Lumber has been able to continue to provide consistent, quality service. The company specializes in a variety of services, some of which include delivery, design and take-off, installed sales, and rentals. Its 7,000 associates are knowledgeable and experienced, and its extensive inventory keeps prices affordable for consumers.

Aside from good service, the company sticks to its traditional values by giving back to the community. It works with organizations such as the Special Olympics and Habitat for Humanity.

As Ridout Lumber continues to work with U.S. LBM, it will likely continue to implement its core values and further improve relationships with local consumers.
