The recently announced merger of Builders FirstSource and BMC is prompting speculation in the residential construction industry on how it will impact operations up and down the supply chain. For some initial analysis, Tony Misura has published two podcasts in the last week looking at potential impacts:

In this episode, Jim and Tony discuss the merger of Builders FirstSource and BMC – two of the largest building materials dealers in the nation. Joining forces to create a company that is over $11B in annual sales, this also creates new challenges and opportunities for manufacturing suppliers, general contractors, and other dealer competitors.

In this follow-up episode on the colossal merger between Builders FirstSource and BMC, Tony meets up with his close friends and LBM dealer presidents, Gary Poulos and Russ Kathrein.

Having first-hand experience with BFS and BMC, Gary and Russ deliver insights about what makes these companies unique, the opportunities ahead for the now $11B business, and how this event will permanently change how the manufacturers and lumber mills interact with the national production builders.
