About FBMA

Established in 1920 to unite the lumber, building material and millwork industries, the Florida Building Material Alliance (FBMA) is a statewide association comprised of retail dealers, wholesalers, distributors and affiliates in the lumber and building material industry. FBMA is governed by a Board of Directors - individuals from all facets of the building material industry. In addition, the FBMA Board of Directors receive valuable input from a variety of committees, including Executive, Government Relations, Education and Membership, just to name a few. As the primary association for the building material industry, FBMA vows to uphold its mission of serving and promoting the interests of the building material industry throughout the State of Florida.
