Organizational shake-up at Stock Building Supply

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Stock Building Supply has confirmed its plans, outlined in an April 1 memo to employees, to reorganize the company into four divisions and eliminate two top executive positions. 

The Raleigh, N.C., pro dealer will no longer have a chief operating officer or VP national sales. Instead, Stock will rely on four regional presidents/general managers, to oversee the No. 4 player in the LBM industry, according to the Home Channel News Top 350 rankings. 

The new divisions and presidents are as follows: 

• The Mid-Atlantic region — Pennsylvania, Virginia, the Washington metro area and Arkansas — will be led by Phil Randolph. 
• The Southeast region, which covers North and South Carolina and Georgia, will also come under Randolph for the time being. 
• Dan Buttars will lead the Southwest region, which includes Texas and New Mexico. 
• Duff Wakefield will head the West region, which covers Utah, Idaho, Washington state and California. 

Stock also announced that senior VP Jim Drexinger will take over all supply chain and operational improvement work, including sourcing, national accounts, product management and marketing.

The employee memo said that chief operational officer Steve Short will be leaving the company, and Nigel Stobart, who held the national sales position, will remain with Stock for a transitional period. 

Stock Building Supply currently operates in 20 residential markets, including Washington D.C.; Paradise, Pa.; Richmond, Va.; Raleigh-Durham, Charlotte and Winston-Salem/Greensboro, N.C.; Greenville and Columbia, S.C.; Atlanta; Austin, Amarillo, Houston, Lubbock and San Antonio, Texas; Albuquerque, N.M.; Salt Lake City and southern Utah; northern Idaho/eastern Idaho; eastern Washington; Central and Northwest Arkansas; and Los Angeles.

Removing ingrown hairs isn't exactly hard but does require prepping the skin and the right post care for the best possible results. If the hair is infected or severely inflamed, physically removing the hair can irritate the skin further because it's in a fragile state, so please use precaution.ingrown hair removal

NAHB data pinpoint remodeling markets

BY HBSDEALER Staff

A new index created by the National Home Builders Association (NAHB) shows county-by-county estimates for remodeling expenditures in the United States. According to the data, Los Angeles County, Calif., leads the country with $9.4 billion spent on remodeling. Other counties in the top five include Cook County, Ill.; Orange and San Diego counties, Calif.; and Maricopa County, Ariz.

"Total remodeling spending in a particular county is most strongly related to the number of homeowners in the county," said NAHB chief economist David Crowe. "On the other hand, we found that remodeling per home depends upon factors such as the share built before 1980, the share owned by married couples and, most significantly, the average value of the homes."

The NAHB created the index by analyzing local remodeling based on home and homeowner characteristics data from the American Housing Survey, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. It is then applied to every county’s homes and homeowners, which the Census Bureau released late last year in its American Community Survey. 

Nantucket County, Mass., leads the nation on remodeling spending per home with $9,369. Other counties in the top five include New York County (Manhattan) and three counties in the San Francisco metropolitan area. In each of these counties, remodeling is more than $8,000 per owner-occupied home. The average across all counties nationwide is $2,085. Homeowners are typically spending about 1.3% of the home’s value on remodeling each year.

NLBMDA applauds Senate’s repeal of 1099 rules

BY HBSDEALER Staff

The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) praised the actions of the United States Senate for passing the crucial 1099 Repeal Legislation. The Senate passed H.R.4, the Comprehensive 1099 Taxpayer Protection and Repayment of Exchange Subsidy Overpayments Act without changing anything in the House-passed bill. 

The bill now goes to the desk of President Obama.

"After a hard-fought, year-long battle on the 1099 legislation, today’s vote is a huge victory for all LBM dealers across the country," said Scott Lynch, NLBMDA executive VP. "Thanks to all of the hard work from all of the NLBMDA members for really pressing this issue with their respective representatives and senators and to those who traveled to Washington last month for the NLBMDA Legislative Conference to make the case in person."

While the administration has not officially put out a statement on what President Obama will do, the President has said on more than one occasion that the 1099 mandate should be repealed. The NLBMDA urges President Obama to sign the repeal legislation, he said.

Under existing tax law, a business taxpayer making payments to a service provider aggregating to $600 or more for services in the course of a trade or business in a year is required to send an information return to the IRS (and to the service provider-payee) setting forth the amount, as well as the name and address of the recipient of the payment (generally on IRS Form 1099). Under the law, the business taxpayer is not required to issue a Form 1099 to a corporation that provides services to it.

The new healthcare reform law made two changes to those rules. The first is to require businesses to issue the Forms 1099 to corporations, as well as all persons in a trade or business. The second is to expand significantly the scope by requiring the issuance for payments made to "property" providers, as well as service providers. The changes were to take effect for payments made after Dec. 31, 2011.
