Earnings drop at Weyerhaeuser

BY Brae Canlen

Federal Way, Wash.-based Weyerhaeuser Co. reported net earnings of $65 million for the fourth quarter, on net sales from continuing operations of $1.6 billion. This compares with net earnings of $171 million on net sales from continuing operations of $1.5 billion for the same period last year.

"In 2011 we took full advantage of opportunities to improve our performance in a weaker than expected US housing market," said Dan Fulton, president and CEO. "In Timberlands, we used our long term competitive strength in the Asian export markets to capitalize on emerging Chinese demand. Cellulose Fibers leveraged strong customer relationships and excellent operational performance to deliver a second consecutive year of record financial results. Our Real Estate business maintained profitability despite challenging market conditions, and Wood Products generated improved results. Through the sale of our hardwoods and Westwood Shipping Lines businesses we sharpened our strategic direction, and we remain focused on improving performance to generate superior sustainable returns for our shareholders in 2012."

For the full year 2011, Weyerhaeuser reported net earnings of $331 million, on net sales from continuing operations of $6.2 billion. This compares with net earnings of $1.281 billion on net sales from continuing operations of $6.0 billion for the full year 2010. Earnings for the full year 2010 include $1.064 billion from income tax adjustments related to Weyerhaeuser’s conversion to a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT).

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Kent, Ohio-based Carter Lumber acquired the assets of DSD Builders Supply of Canton, Ohio, a former subsidiary of Stark Truss. The asset purchase of DSD Builders Supply included the inventory, rolling stock and equipment. 

“Carter Lumber has always positioned itself to take advantage of opportunities in the markets we serve”, said Jeff Donley Carter Lumber’s Chief Operating Officer. “By making this investment, we continue to strengthen our market position as one of the premier building materials suppliers in the country.”

Carter will operate the store under the Holmes Lumber brand, which has been a division of Carter since 2004. Holmes Lumber opened the new store today in Canton, Ohio and adds to its current facilities in Millersburg, Ohio and Sugarcreek, Ohio. The store will become a full service lumberyard, with expanded product offerings. In addition, many of the key employees including former manager Mike Kiefer were retained in the transition.

“We are very pleased to bring this new store into the Carter Lumber Family of Companies," said Donley. "We look forward to the long term growth potential in this market."

Carter Lumber was the Home Channel News Pro Dealer of the Year in 2007.

New American Home to shine at Builders’ Show

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Just outside of Orlando, Fla., a 4,181-sq.-ft. home with a clean, modern design is carrying on a tradition now its 29th year — the unveiling of The New American Home.

The project is sponsored by The National Association of Home Builders, organizers of the International Builders’ Show set for Orlando Feb. 8 to 11, and Builder magazine.

As NAHB’s official show home, TNAH gives building industry professionals an opportunity to see design trends, construction techniques, and materials that can be used in any new or remodeled home. The showcase products in the home are provided by members of the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council.

Phil Kean of Winter Park, Fla., the architect and builder of the 2012 home, tipped his hat to Classic White Box architecture of the 1960s and 1970s with his design for this year’s show home. Modern touches include certifications with the National Green Building Stardand (Emerald); US Department of Energy’s Energy Star certification; Flordia Green Building Coalition (Platinum); and a US EPA Indoor airPlus Qualified mark.

The house is built on an infill site in an older neighborhood close to downtown Winter Park.
