Builders FirstSource Adds Vertically Integrated Capabilities Through Acquisition of Raney Construction

General News

Builders FirstSource, Inc. (“Builders FirstSource” or “we”) announced it has purchased the assets of Raney Components, LLC and Raney Construction, Inc. (“Raney”), located in Groveland, Florida.

Founded in 1997, Raney is recognized in the industry for pioneering a vertically-integrated manufacturing and installation model which significantly improves labor productivity and reduces cycle times for customers.  Through this value-added approach, Raney supplies wall panels, roof trusses, roof decking, interior wall framing and other select building materials and then partners with sub-contractors to install these products in approximately three thousand homes per year to its production builder customers across Florida. Raney has annual revenue of approximately $140 million.

“I am thrilled to welcome Buddy Raney and his entire team of employees into the Builders FirstSource family. Raney has been an innovator in our industry in working toward fast and efficient homebuilding by combining the supply of materials with off-site manufacturing to control and accelerate the construction schedule. Their success has been driven by reducing cycle times and increasing labor efficiency, helping to alleviate industry-wide home affordability constraints. This acquisition not only strengthens our leadership position in Florida, but also provides us with a new vertically-integrated value-added service capability within our company’s next-generation growth strategy,” said Chad Crow, Chief Executive Officer.

Buddy Raney, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Raney businesses, added, “Raney is built on the core values of quality, customer service, performance, and safety. Builders FirstSource believes in our business model and provides an exceptional fit through its scale and resources to fuel the next chapter of our growth. I’m proud to join forces with Builders FirstSource and excited about what the future holds for the Raney team.”

Mr. Crow added, “Raney is our fourth tuck-in acquisition of 2019, which together provide over $200 million in annual value-added net sales. As homebuilding becomes more sophisticated, we are focused on expanding our ability to partner and integrate with customers to streamline the construction process. This acquisition marks our entry into vertically integrated manufacturing. We will continue to pursue acquisitions that drive construction efficiency and enhance our customer value proposition.”
