GMS Acquires Grabber Construction Products, Inc.’s Hawaiian Business

March 2017

GMS Inc., a North American distributor of gypsum wallboard and suspended ceiling systems, has acquired the Hawaiian distribution assets of Grabber Construction Products, Inc. in Honolulu.
    
Grabber’s Hawaiian operation, founded in 1974, is a highly regarded supplier of fasteners and drywall related products, including USG ceilings throughout Hawaii. Grabber’s presence in the Hawaiian market will materially expand GMS’s footprint in the state. It will be combined with GMS’s existing Hawaiian operations under the J&B Materials brand.
