Carter Lumber makes yard moves in Ohio
Carter Lumber, the 144-unit pro dealer based in Kent, Ohio, is bringing the employees and operations of its Medina, Ohio, location into its Carter-Jones Lumber location in Akron,
The company says the Medina facility is closing and consolidating in Akron because it outgrew the confines of its 4-acre location. The Akron facility measures 17 acres, and it will be rebranded as Carter Lumber.
Separately, in a move designed to provide a better service location for the western suburbs of Cleveland, Carter Lumber will open a new facility in Elyria, Ohio. The 10-acre yard will be located at 41625 Griswold Rd, Elyria Ohio on the site previously occupied by Dell Lumber.
The new yard will consolidate the operations and employees of nearby Carter Lumber in Sheffield Village, which is closing. Again the company said the closing of Sheffield Village was the result of outgrowing the confines of the facility.
Carter Lumber said it is currently working through logistics and plans on the full service lumberyard being operational in mid-March.
