Spahn & Rose Lumber Co. has entered into an agreement to purchase City Lumber Co., a lumber and building-materials supplier, truss manufacturer and hardware store in Huntsville, Ala.

"This longtime, family-owned business has a deep commitment to its community, customers and employees," says Dave Davis, Spahn & Rose's CEO. "Those values dovetail beautifully with Spahn & Rose. We're extremely proud to have City Lumber join the Spahn & Rose family."

City Lumber was founded in 1974 and Dick Strobel steadily grew the business over the decades, emphasizing community involvement and while providing building materials to northern Alabama. In 2010, Strobel's daughter, Gina, and son-in-law, Jason Terry, purchased the company.

"Our family business has been the center of our lives for the past few decades, and we'd like to thank Spahn & Rose for its commitment to City Lumber, our employees, and our community," Terry says. "We're proud of what our family has built and we are excited to see it continue with Spahn & Rose."

According to a news release, the name will remain City Lumber, and local management will not change. City Lumber is a 49-year-old company and is known throughout north-central Alabama for providing building materials such as decking, doors, siding and windows. City Lumber's Estimating and Design Department provides customers full-dimensional lumber take-offs and materials plans. The company's truss manufacturing capabilities help contractors and builders save time and money. 

"City Lumber's manufacturing capabilities brings another dimension of expertise and excellence to Spahn & Rose," Davis says.
