Short and Paulk makes acquisition in Georgia

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Short and Paulk Supply Company of Tifton, Ga., acquired Laing Hardware in Dawson, Ga.

Laing Hardware was opened in 1983, by Jack Laing, as a division of Laing Implement Company. 

Short and Paulk has closed the store for approximately three weeks to remodel and re-merchandise the location. The retailer said it hopes to be re-opened for business in Dawson in early March. It plans on holding a grand opening in April.

According to Jay Short, President and CEO of Short and Paulk Supply Company, “Dawson will be a great addition and will help to better serve our customers throughout Southwest Georgia. The Laing family has served the Dawson community for many years and we hope to continue to carry on their tradition by being actively involved in the community.”

When completed, the store will offer customers an updated interior featuring a full-service hardware and building products center. The facility will feature a full line lumberyard, a millwork showroom displaying a variety of windows, doors, moulding and hardware available for special order.

In addition to this new location in Dawson, the company operates lumberyards in Tifton, Sylvester, and Albany and two Tifton-based manufacturing plants, one for doors, and another for roof and floor trusses. The plants currently deliver products to work sites across south Georgia. Short and Paulk truss plant also wholesales both trusses and engineered lumber to other lumberyards in Georgia.

Regulations deter rebuilding for Nebraska dealer

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Louisville Ace Hardware, a Nebraska dealer that closed after a fire destroyed the store, has decided not to reopen due to the costs imposed by various government regulations.

In a letter published by The Plattsmouth Journal, owners Larry and Maureen Gulizia cited increased flood plain levels that require a severely elevated building; the American Disabilities Act’s stringent guidelines; and the state of Nebraska’s new Energy Initiative as factors that will add additional costs to construction.  

Larry Gulizia has begun working for the city of Louisville and Maureen Gulizia has taken a position with Westlake Ace Hardware as a paint department specialist, the letter said.

Too bad for the owner. But so
Too bad for the owner. But so sad to think that the government is imposing a lot of payment to potential owners and that is the reason why they don't reopen or open their business. - Mendel Mintz

New Mexico dealer rebrands and expands

BY Brae Canlen

A Do it Best member with two stores in New Mexico has launched a wholesale division, remodeled its stores, and rebranded them under a single name: Builders Do it Center. Justin Ellis, corporate sales manager for Roswell Lumber Do it Center and Artesia Do it Center, told Home Channel News that the impetus for the change was future growth for the company, which would like to expand its geographical footprint. 

“We’re looking to grow, and one of the things that’s stopped us from making a couple of acquisitions in the past was the branding issue,” he explained. But on April 2, both home centers reopened as Builders Do it Center, with kitchen, bath, flooring and millwork showrooms. The stores, which cater to builders, specialty contractors, remodelers, roofers, commercial and industrial customers, and project-oriented DIYers, have recently been remodeled and remerchandised.

“We’ve also re-entered the lighting business after [an absence of] seven or eight years,” said Ellis, whose father, Bruce Ellis, founded the company and will continue to serve as president and CEO. 

The company’s latest venture, RLC Supply & Logistics, is a wholesale operation that “came from the need for us to manage some of our own inventory, as well as some vendors looking for a distributor partner,” Ellis explained. Still in its infancy, the division hopes to extend its reach into West Texas and Southern Colorado. The wholesale unit and the stores will operate under parent company Roswell Lumber Co., which also includes the Overhead Door of Southeast New Mexico. Two new web sites, buildersdoitcenter.com and buildersknowledge.com, have been launched as part of the initiative.
