ProBuild reveals list of closures

ProBuild Holdings, which confirmed last Friday that it was closing 20 of its units across the nation, announced 16 of the locations late Monday. The closures include lumber yards, component facilities, gypsum yards, and millwork facilities in both large and small markets, the Denver-based company said.

“Some of these locations are being consolidated with other locations nearby, while others are being mothballed until the construction industry conditions improve,” the prepared statement said. “Those facilities can be restarted quickly once we see a turnaround.”

The lists of 16 closures include:    

Newberg, Ore., lumberyard Auburn, Wash., framing business Sequim, Wash., lumberyard Sacramento, Calif., lumberyard Phoenix, Ariz., truss facility Poway, Calif., retail home center Cottonwood, Ariz., lumberyard Orem, Utah, lumberyard Jackson, Wis., lumberyard Gainesville, Va., millwork and windows facility Dry Ridge, Ky., truss facility Franklin, Tenn., components facility Augusta, Ga., framing/gypsum facility Jacksonville, Fla., lumber/gypsum/millwork North Charlotte, N.C., lumberyard Easton, Md., gypsum.

The company pointed to two line-of-business closures:

National City, Calif., truss plant only Waldorf, Md., truss plant only.                          

The remaining four closures are “pending,” according to ProBuild’s announcement. No timeline was given for the shutdown, but vendors told Home Channel News they were asked to remove their inventory by the end of the year. In Poway, Calif., a retail-oriented home center was already holding a 30% off clearance sale last weekend.
