Construction Resources Acquires United Materials Inc.

Construction Resources, LLC, an Atlanta-based design and construction supply company, has acquired United Materials, Inc. (UMI), a Florida-based importer and distributor of surfacing materials.

Since its founding in 2002, UMI has grown into one of the largest wholesale suppliers of stone products in the Southeast. Its countertop slab offerings include quartz, natural stone, porcelain, and recycled glass, in addition to complementary products including tile and sinks. UMI has a diversified customer base, with more than 1,500 customers and annual revenues in excess of $50M. UMI has three design centers/distribution facilities located in Naples, Tampa, and Boynton Beach, Fla.

According to the recent press release, the management team at UMI will continue in their current roles, post-transaction, as a part of the Construction Resources group. UMI’s sales and operations teams will continue providing quality products and service to their clients. UMI has plans for expansion throughout the state of Florida, which will generate a greater reach and facilitate a more localized distribution of slabs to better support the fabricator network in the residential and commercial segments.

Founded by the Hires family in 1970 to manufacture cultured marble products, Construction Resources now offers more than 60 nationally-recognized brands across 10 product categories in the single-family, multi-family and commercial segments.
