US LBM Holdings has expanded its growing network of pro dealers with the addition of Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Standard Companies, Inc.

“Standard is a great addition to the US LBM team, expanding our presence and capabilities in the Western Michigan market,” said US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson. “Standard’s dedicated and knowledgeable team of associates have succeeded by providing a local feel and focus to their customer needs, which aligns perfectly with the goals of US LBM. We look forward to continuing and expanding upon their success.”

Standard Companies is a family-owned business, currently managed by third-generation president Tim Rottschafer and his siblings.

The company was originally founded in 1904 as a fuel and feed store by Omge and Kenelska Rottschafer, who immigrated to the U.S. from the Netherlands.

Today, the company distributes cabinetry, windows, doors, trusses, components, roofing, siding and framing materials throughout Western Michigan. It encompasses eight cabinetry showrooms, six building material distribution centers and a component manufacturing facility.

“We are excited and proud to join the US LBM team and the opportunity it brings to provide our customers with continued enhancements to our product and service offering,” said Tim Rottschafer. “This partnership with US LBM provides a platform for growth to our associates and partners for the future.”
