Boise Cascade is opening a new distribution center in the Kansas City metro area. The facility, in Lee`s Summit, Missouri, will focus on serving customers within a 150-mile radius of Kansas City.
"We are excited to be increasing our market presence by offering a wider range of products and enhanced service capability in the local market,” said Jon Strickler, location manager. “We believe the Kansas City metro market and surrounding areas offer opportunity for growth as the housing market continues to improve and repair and remodel activity increases."
The 10-acre site is located near interstate 470 and is served by the Union Pacific railroad. The distribution facility is expected to be fully operational by late third quarter.
"Boise Cascade has served the Kansas City market on a limited basis for several years, and we are pleased to strengthen our service and product offering with an in-market location. We look forward to expanding our business with lumber and building material dealers, home centers, and specialty dealers," added Nick Stokes, executive VP of Boise Cascade Building Materials Distribution.
