GMS Inc. has acquired the assets of interior building products distributor Charles G. Hardy Inc. in Paramount, Calif.
    
Since its founding in 1946, CGH has been serving commercial and residential customers in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. CGH offers a variety of interior building products.
    
The acquisition of CGH results in GMS’s first facility located in the Los Angeles–Long Beach–Anaheim, Calif., metropolitan area, the second-largest nationwide. CGH will join GMS’s five existing locations in California to provide comprehensive coverage of Southern California.
    
The CGH brand name, which has been in the Los Angeles market for over 70 years, will be retained at the Paramount location while legacy GMS locations in Southern California will continue to operate under the J&B Materials brand name.
