BMC WEST ACQUIRES CARSON BUILDING SUPPLY

 BMC WEST ACQUIRES CARSON BUILDING SUPPLY
 BOISE, Idaho, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- BMC West Corp. (NASDAQ: BMCW),


a regional distributor and retailer of building materials, said today it is entering the Nevada market with the acquisition of a three-unit building materials supply firm in the western part of the state.
 The firm, Carson Building Supply, has operations in Carson City, Gardnerville and Reno, Nev. The acquisition, which is pending final documentation, is expected to be completed in early August.
 "This is a perfect fit for us on both a strategic and operational basis," said Donald S. Hendrickson, BMC West president and chief executive officer. "We currently operate in seven other western states, and entering the Nevada market allows us to continue growing our business in this part of the U.S.," Hendrickson said. Acquiring the three-facility Nevada operation expands BMC West's operations to 32 building materials centers in eight states.
 Hendrickson noted that Carson Building Supply, in operation since 1971, has all the attributes that BMC West looks for in an acquisition. "It is operating profitably in a growing market, has experienced employees who have built an excellent business reputation, and, like BMC West, primarily serves professional contractors and advanced, service-oriented consumers," he explained.
 BMC West distributes building materials products primarily to professional contractors and advanced, service-oriented consumers. The company operates building materials centers in Washington, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, central California, Oregon and western Texas. Annual revenues in 1991 were $218.8 million.
