Westside officials say the lawsuit is a baseless attempt to stifle competition.
“It’s completely untrue and totally misleading,” said Scott Blanchard, vice president of marketing at Westside.
“We’re not the source of all of the material that is available.
The Westside team is the only one who can actually use that material to build homes and businesses.”
Westside’s building supplies are sold through a wholesale network of suppliers and can be purchased at a local store, a chain store, an online store or online.
The chain stores carry the majority of the building supplies in the United States, but some suppliers have been sued.
“The Westside brand is synonymous with quality building materials and services, and we will vigorously defend against any such claim,” Blanchards said in a statement.
