Strategy

Despite a slowdown in 2010 as the country struggled with a decline in construction activity, ProBuild continued to grow organically by opening new stores and manufacturing facilities. ProBuild seeks out opportunities in key housing markets that have steady or growing construction demand. Following several acquisitions in recent years, however, ProBuild has put the brakes on expanding, particularly its staff. In 2012 the company instituted a hiring freeze at its Denver headquarters and eliminated several high-level management positions as it worked to reorganize its business. The move also included aligning its executive staff to allow for better insight into market issues.

Mergers and Acquisitions

In 2011 ProBuild acquired Harbert Lumber company, expanding its business into Colorado. Previous purchases include Chopp Lumber in Waldorf, Maryland, and Oso Lumber in Arlington, Washington, both in 2010. – less
