Oklahoma City-based Cedar Creek entered into a lease agreement to open a new location in Long Beach, Mississippi, by Dec. 1.
According to Cedar Creek CEO Bill Adams, “This is a great strategic fit as it positions us to provide optimal service to customers along the Gulf Coast from the Florida panhandle across the southern tier of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.“
Cedar Creek covers some of the Gulf Coast currently, but the company thinks the facility will improve service to existing customers while providing access to new customers.
Cedar Creek is a leading wholesale building material distribution company with 24 locations serving over 30 states. In May 2010, Cedar Creek was recapitalized by Boston-based Charlesbank Capital Partners, with the goal of providing flexible capital for the company to grow beyond its current trade areas.
