“Brand Vaughan has been a trusted supplier and partner to construction professionals in Georgia over the past 75 years, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to US LBM and continue their growth story,” said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. “Brand Vaughan adds to US LBM an established, premier building products distributor and construction services provider in several fast growing housing markets in Georgia, including the greater Atlanta metropolitan area.”
