In light of this exciting development, LMC is establishing a new Modular Building Division. This new division is specifically designed to support the manufactured housing channel, enhancing the integration of MHBG’s operations with those of LMC. Members of the MHBG team will be integral to the LMC team within this newly formed division.

The collaboration between MHBG and LMC is set to offer numerous advantages. MHBG members will now have access to a broader range of product lines and the comprehensive services provided by LMC, while maintaining the strong purchasing power they have established with their current product focus. This partnership not only emphasizes LMC’s dedication to providing superior procurement solutions but also aims to drive cost efficiencies, promote sustainable growth, and encourage diversification within the industry.

This strategic alliance marks a milestone in LMC’s mission to empower its members and enhance their market presence through effective collaboration and resource sharing. As we move forward, the focus will remain on maximizing the benefits for all members involved, setting a new standard for innovation and efficiency in the building materials and forest products industry.
