Know Our history
Founded by Martel Wilson in Stockton, California, Building Material Distributors grew rapidly into a valuable resource for professional builders. By 1974, with our sights firmly set on reaching customers all across the country, BMD acquired a new 65,000 sq. ft. building in Galt, CA, making it our new headquarters.
Becoming a fully employee-owned company in 2008, BMD today remains one of the most capable distributors of high-end construction materials for commercial and residential projects in the United States.
BMD is an industry leader, both in our capabilities, and our drive for innovation.
BMD has a long history of expertise and providing new experiences for the customers and markets we serve. From being recognized as the National Wholesaler of the Year by the National Building Material Distributor Association to launching an industry first next day delivery service, BMD continues to deliver building solutions to the building process.
Growth Through partnerships
To provide builders with the absolute best materials and products for their projects, we have long valued partnerships with, and acquisitions of, the leading names in our industry. That is why in 1977, BMD introduced premium window brand Marvin to the California market. We continue to serve builders nationwide, and remain committed to making the highest quality brands available to every part of the United States.

We provide building professionals across the country the best brands and service.
BMD represents over 75 years of expertise in the building industry.
