Ruffin-logoBallinger, TX – Mueller, Inc., with corporate headquarters located in Ballinger, has entered into an agreement to purchase the assets of Ruffin Building Systems, based in Oak Grove, Louisiana. 

Mueller and Ruffin share many common attributes, including a history of family ownership, an enduring track record of excellence, a desire for ongoing innovation and an uncompromising commitment to customer service.  Together, they offer their customers 130 years of experience in the metal manufacturing industry.

“We see this as an opportunity to support our long-term strategy,” Davenport said.  “By expanding our presence with the addition of this facility, we can offer increased convenience and service to both new and existing Mueller customers”. 

Mueller currently serves customers in the Southwestern United States from 32 sales and 3 manufacturing locations. With this acquisition, they will be expanding their service area into the Central and Eastern United States.

 “Our strategy of directly serving the end users with metal building and metal roofing solutions at the best total value will still be our primary focus, by continuing to combine quality metal products with dedication to customer service,” Davenport said.

The Davenport family acquired Mueller Supply Company in 1984.  The company has since become a leading manufacturer of pre-engineered metal building systems and residential metal roofing products.
