They plan on growing the business by offering more services and expanding into additional cities.

SOLD: Tri-Lumber and Hardware Company

The CBB Team takes great pride in providing personalized, professional service to each of our clients and it is always gratifying when we receive testimonials. So, we thought we’d share.

CBB served as intermediary in the sale of Tri-Lumber Hardware of Houston, Texas, to Parker Lumber Company, headquartered in Beaumont, Texas. The acquisition creates the 18th location of Parker Lumber's stores serving customers in Texas and California. Tri-Lumber Hardware was established in 1957 and has been in the same location for 55 years. Andy McCloskey, the majority shareholder, grew up working in the store and lumber yard created by his father. They initially served the farm and ranch community on the edge of the city, but as Houston expanded around the store, Andy and his family continued to provide the same friendly, small-town service to their urban customers. When Andy decided to retire, he contacted CBB to help him with the sale of the business.

Parker Lumber Company was the ideal buyer for Andy's company. Parker is also a family owned business that was established over 70 years ago in Port Arthur, Texas. Scott Parker, CEO of Parker Lumber, has guided the growth of the company by starting or acquiring hardware stores in primarily rural areas where there is little competition from the big box stores. Scott determined that Tri-Lumber was an excellent opportunity for Parker to expand to a metropolitan area since the owners and emp loyees had same customer focus and attention to personal service that is the foundation of Parker Lumber's success.
