“We are looking forward to working with Joe Westover, Rob Morris, and the APM team to assure a smooth transition over the next several months, closing is expected around the end of the first quarter of next year,” said Joe Westover, president of APM.

Rob Morris, APM CEO, said he looks forward to working with YBC and the APM team, knowing that the new resources will only help to grow the APM business. APM and YBC have similar goals, culture, and values in their respective markets, allowing for a continued commitment of providing exceptional products to customers, he said.

“We are grateful to our Customers, Vendors, and Suppliers, this acquisition will continue to strengthen those relationships,” Morris said.

APM began in 1959 by Karl Westover and has been part of the Central Pennsylvania Business Community for over sixty years. The organization has three True Value hardware and building supplies stores and manufactures roof trusses, wall panels, and floor trusses.

“We are grateful for all those who have helped APM throughout the last sixty years – past and present APM Team Members, Vendors and Suppliers, and loyal Customers. I believe that future for APM has never been stronger,” said Westover.

Your Building Centers, an LBM Journal 100 company, operates 17 locations throughout central Pennsylvania. YBC employs around 375 people, and is the largest Pennsylvania employee-owned lumber and building material supplier.
