HOUSTON, TX -- BMC, one of the nation's leading providers of building materials and construction services, last week announced the opening of a new lumber and building materials distribution center in Denver, Colorado and another in Houston, Texas.
The new Houston lumberyard, located at 7355 West Road, enhances the company's capacity to serve homebuilders in the Greater Houston market, extending to a 100-mile delivery radius. The new facility also extends the availability of building products to BMC customers of the company's two nationally-recognized Houston millwork operations - a 250,000 sq. ft. facility and a 100,000 sq. ft. facility that provide millwork distribution, manufacturing and custom millwork production.
"Houston, and the state of Texas, continue to lead the nation in demand for lumber and we will continue to invest resources in the region that benefit our customers and deliver value," said Peter Alexander, chief executive officer of BMC. "This lumberyard is one example where our customers will reap the rewards of that investment as they realize increased service level, more capacity in the Houston area, quick response time and greater depth of inventory.
Services offered at the lumberyard include: quick response and precisely timed deliveries enabled by BMC's state-of-the-art dispatch system. BMC's fleet of semi-truck flatbeds with truck-mounted forklifts provide tailored deliveries of large amounts of materials, sequenced and placed on the job site to improve contractor efficiency.
Products carried at the lumberyard include: I-Joists and engineered wood products, dimensional framing lumber, panel products and job site construction supplies. Additionally, this facility can provide pre-manufactured roof trusses and custom built timber trusses.
Houston Market LBM Manager Kyle Williams, an industry veteran with 29 years of experience all in Texas, will oversee the lumberyard.
The Denver lumberyard and distribution center will serve all of Colorado's Front Range, as well as Summit County and Southern Wyoming.
"The location of this new distribution center and lumberyard is critical to the reemergence of the residential housing market in the Denver Metro and Colorado markets," said Peter Alexander, chief executive officer of BMC. "Our customers will benefit from an increased service level, more capacity in the Denver Metro area, quick response time, greater depth of inventory and the availability of optimized packages of engineered wood products.
BMC serves customer segments that will drive the housing market as it begins to come back from the challenging economic climate, including production and custom homebuilders, repair and remodeling contractors and light commercial contractors.
