Griffin Lumber Buys Baldwin Builders Supply
Griffin Lumber & Hardware
Griffin Lumber & Hardware has acquired Baldwin Builders Supply, a lumber, building materials, and hardware retailer in Milledgeville, Georgia.
Baldwin Builders Supply will be the sixth retail LBM location for Griffin Lumber & Hardware, joining its current locations in Cordele, Leesburg, Tifton, Forsyth, and Griffin, Georgia. Baldwin Builders Supply is a great fit for Griffin Lumber and the acquisition emphasizes their commitment to serving Georgia builders and making building easier for them, says Griffin Lumber President CJ Griffin on the LMC website.
Griffin Lumber & Hardware dates back to 1948 and started with milling logs to lumber. That continues today with their mill in Cordele, Georgia.
The third generation of Griffin Lumber looks forward to continuing Baldwin Builders Supply’s tradition of excellence and reputation for quality and service, Griffin says. The transition is effective Sept. 27.
“Baldwin Builders Supply has an excellent reputation in the community. The company has also operated with a set of values that we like, admire and feel is aligned with Griffin’s. People matter at Baldwin and the company has high standards. When the opportunity to acquire this company arose, we quickly recognized that it would be a good long‐term move that strengthened both companies,” Griffin added.
“The people, products and reputation of Baldwin Builders Supply have always been very important to us. When the opportunity to join the Griffin Lumber team presented itself, it quickly became evident that this was an excellent fit. Griffin Lumber has some unique marketing and manufacturing competencies that will further distinguish us from the competition in our geography. We could not be more confident in our future under Griffin Lumber’s leadership and look forward to overseeing a smooth transition,” said Ben Raley, CEO of Baldwin Builders Supply.
