Company History

Lynwood first opened its doors in 1980 as a subsidiary of Chris B. Christians, Inc., a local lath and plaster contracting company out of San Antonio. Founded in 1910, Chris B. Christians II and his company gained national recognition for being a pioneer to the lath and plaster industry. In the 1950’s second generation sons Sonny and Buddy Christians joined the family business and continued the growth and excellence. Quickly acknowledged as hard workers with an acute business sense, the Christians brothers continued to expand and diversify the scope of Chris B. Christians, Inc. with the purchase of Lynwood Brick and Tile in 1974. Facilitating the ever-growing material sales that resulted as an off shoot of Christians contracting, they shortly thereafter decided to separate the material sales from the contracting company, and thus, Lynwood Building Materials came into existence.

Since 1980, Lynwood has been owned and operated by Chris B. Christians III, the grandson of Chris B. Christians II. Maintaining the high standards of quality and customer service set by his father and grandfather before him Chris continues to increase Lynwood’s position as an industry leader. Given the history of its founding, Lynwood continues to stock a main stay of lathing and plastering inventories, and also specializes in steel studs, drywall, acoustical ceilings, insulation, masonry, and concrete materials, with most construction needs available at just one stop. Keeping the family tradition alive, the 4th generation of Christians’ have joined in the business and are eager to lead the company in the future. CB Christians and Leslie Rosales both have years of experience working at Lynwood learning the ins and outs of the business and industry. They fully value the independent spirit of Lynwood and the freedom it allows to provide the best customer service.
