The property located at 939 South Route 83 in Grayslake will be managed by former owner of Stan’s Lumber, Carl Torstenson.
“We are excited to have this opportunity in Grayslake,” said Torstenson. “The facility will allow Edward Hines to fulfill the demand for an additional Lake County professional building materials dealer. We look forward to servicing customers throughout Lake County and the surrounding areas.”
In addition to providing a full range of lumber and building materials, the Edward Hines Grayslake Location will have a window, door and cabinetry showroom and design center.
Edward Hines also operates building supply centers in Alsip, Hampshire, and Wheaton, a Millwork facility in Kirkland, and a Window, Door and Cabinetry showroom in Buffalo Grove.
“The addition of Edward Hines to the Grayslake area will help diversify and stabilize the local economy in the “Heart of Lake County,” said Grayslake Mayor Rhett Taylor said. “Edward Hines has been a landmark business throughout Chicagoland and we are proud to welcome them to historic Grayslake.”
