SBMA’s Annual Summer Conference

Wyndham Oceanfront Resort
Virginia Beach, VA


For Immediate Release - Charlotte, NC and Columbus, Ohio

The memberships of both the Ohio Construction Suppliers Association (OCSA) and the Southern Building Material Association, Inc. (SBMA) have voted to merge their two organizations. OCSA represents lumber and building material suppliers in Ohio. SBMA represents lumber and building material suppliers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. The merger will become effective in early 2014. The new organization, Building Material Suppliers Association, Inc. will be headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Jon Stier, Chairman of SBMA and owner of Stier Supply in Columbia and Irmo, South Carolina reports that the merger will help both organizations serve their members at a higher level. Stier will serve as the first Chairman of BMSA.

OCSA President George S. Miser of Lumber Service, Inc. in Carrollton, Ohio said, "This merger of OCSA with SBMA is a great opportunity for Ohio's independent dealers to have a stronger association to serve their needs. All the services that are offered now will still be available to our Ohio members, with even more services than we had before... I am excited to meet and network with the many new members of our new association. "

SBMA President Larry Adams will become president of BMSA, while Lynn Schwarz, currently OCSA's Executive Vice President, will be BMSA's Executive Director.
