Building Products & Distribution Investment Banking

A trusted, hands-on approach.

Reliability and focused sector expertise underpin the firm foundation of our Building Products & Distribution team. Over the past decade, Raymond James has served as the middle-market advisor to distribution businesses, as well as manufacturers of building products and construction materials. During that time, our team has advised clients on nearly 55 M&A and capital markets transactions, providing us with industry knowledge and insight that remains comprehensive in the middle market. Through our extensive network of strategic buyers, key executives and capital providers, we consistently deliver optimal transaction results, both domestically and abroad. Client satisfaction is the firm priority of the Building Products & Distribution practice. We therefore ensure that a senior-level banker remains actively involved throughout the lifecycle of a transaction.
