BMC builds on sales at second national meeting

BY Ken Clark

The theme was "America’s Homebuilding Recovery Starts With Us." The place was Las Vegas. And the guest speaker was football legend Terry Bradshaw. 

The second annual BMC National Sales Meeting was an all-hands-on-deck affair for the Boise, Idaho-based pro dealer’s sales team and branch operations managers. The Jan. 9 to 12 event also had 140 vendor companies represented, along with about 200 customers. 

"The energy was good because the whole team was there," said BMC CEO Peter Alexander. "Our ‘town-hall’ meetings were very effective and they had good sales work on top of that."

During the event, Terry Bradshaw presented Alexander with a commemorative jersey when the multiple Super Bowl champion quarterback addressed the meeting Monday evening during BMC’s "Sports Night." Referring to a remarkable play from 1972 that led to a touchdown and a playoff victory, Bradshaw said, "When I hear about the BMC story, it reminds me of the immaculate reception. They have a great team and a winning attitude."

During the meeting, Alexander and BMC’s executive team detailed the company’s strategy to their entire sales and management group, plus customers from all of the company’s markets. The event also featured a large vendor trade show with exhibits from the industry’s leading suppliers.

Alexander noted: "This year’s show is larger by almost 300 participants, attended by four times as many vendor partners than last year, and included nearly 200 of our key customers.

"Today we are operating fundamentally well and incrementally better,” he added. “We understand that passion wins the business, but crisp execution keeps the customer."

With sponsors, Dream Home looks for owners

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Is that a small village near the banks of the Provo River? Actually, it’s the HGTV Dream Home 2012.

The latest in the series of HGTV Dream Homes is in Park City, Utah, near the Provo River.

Lumber Liquidators and Sherwin-Williams are among the sponsors of the HGTV Dream Home 2012. Bissell vacuums and Delta Faucet Co. are also co-sponsors of the Dream Home, which serves as the grand prize in an HGTV promotional sweepstakes.

The back yard of the home has several decks, a gas fireplace with a glass screen and outdoor living room with an outdoor kitchen. Fitting the dream-home mold, the house’s interior features a media room, great room, and open kitchen and dining room. 

HGTV has been building Dream Homes for its series in each of the past 16 years.

The new home’s tankless water heaters are supplied by Rinnai Corp.

"By showcasing home products and technologies that are both inspirational and attainable, the HGTV Dream Home serves as a design resource for millions of homeowners,” said Brad Sweet, VP marketing for Rinnai.

I can totally imagine myself sipping tea from an antique silver tea set in one of these dream homes. I like the idea they have of pooling all these sponsors to come up with these dream homes. If I had the money, I would definitely buy one of these homes.

Agency approved for wood pellet certification

BY Brae Canlen

The American Lumber Standard Committee (ALSC) has announced that Pacific Lumber Inspection Bureau will serve as a third-party auditing agency of the Pellet Fuels Institute’s (PFI) densified wood pellet monitoring and labeling program, as administered by the ALSC.

Manufacturers of PFI-graded pellet fuels will be allowed to place labels on their packaging that assure consumers and retailers that the pellets meet the new standards. In order to use the PFI certification label, manufacturers must adhere to the PFI standard, which includes third-party mill inspections by an ALSC-accredited inspection agency as a part of the compliance procedure.

According to the PFI, at least 27 companies representing 41 pellet manufacturing mills have pledged to support the PFI standards program. PFI’s membership includes approximately 60% of the pellet mills operating in the United States, according to PFI.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which will finalize its own regulations for residential wood heaters later this year, is expected to adopt the PFI standard for wood pellets.
