LBM – An Industry Faced
with Constant Consolidation

Anchor Peabody is the premier M&A advisor in lumber and building materials distribution (“LBM”), with clients ranging from $25 million to $1 billion+ in revenues. The industry’s most recognizable families, brands, and management teams look to Anchor Peabody to play a central role as they think through their most critical M&A decisions. For over 15+ years we have supported the LBM industry – which has been consolidating since the 1960s – leveraging our unmatched industry knowledge to deliver outsized M&A results for our clients. The Anchor team participates in this work as true partners and stakeholders in LBM vs. traditional, generalist “transactional” bankers who parachute in and out of industries as deal activity changes.
