"The town of Jarrell has enthusiastically welcomed Builders FirstSource and we are excited to further develop our relationship with the community," says Floyd Sherman. "Chris Holmes, our vice president of building material sales for Texas, and his team have done an outstanding job getting this facility up and running. We look forward to increasing our presence in the state of Texas and specifically the greater Austin market, which continues to be one of the strongest housing markets in the nation."
