L&W Supply Corporation, a leading distributor of top-quality building materials and specialty products in the United States, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Starr’s Building Supply, Inc. (SBS), located at 1421 Cannon Street in Sacramento, CA.

By acquiring SBS, L&W Supply will increase its team of experienced associates and strengthen its presence in the greater Sacramento market. It will become L&W Supply’s second location in the area and 17th in California.
