About Us

Founded in 2009, Construction Material Specialists (CMS) emerged during a pivotal time in the construction industry. In the wake of the 2008 recession, five major lumberyards exited Michigan, leaving a significant gap in the market for independent material suppliers. Recognizing this opportunity, our founders were driven to create a company that not only filled this void but also offered innovative and flexible solutions to meet the evolving needs of builders and developers.

From the beginning, CMS has been more than just a supplier of construction materials. We are a partner in your projects, dedicated to providing exceptional service and value engineering to maximize your budget. Our team excels in project consulting, working closely with design teams, developers, and builders from the initial stages to ensure the success of every project.

Our commitment to building strong relationships, delivering custom solutions, and maintaining a rapid response guarantee sets us apart in the industry. As a family-run, locally owned business, we pride ourselves on our agility, competitive pricing, and the ability to adapt to the unique demands of each client.

Today, CMS serves both residential and commercial markets across 14 states, continuing to grow and innovate. We are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of integrity, reliability, and accountability, ensuring that every project we undertake is a testament to our core values and commitment to excellence.
