WOLF flexes promotional muscle on Facebook

BY Ken Clark

York, Pa.-based WOLF, the supplier of kitchen cabinets and building products, is giving away a cabinet and vanity top package through a Facebook-only sweepstakes.

Visitors to WOLF’s Facebook page who are over the age of 18 may enter the contest by completing a simple form. The sweepstakes ends on Dec. 9.

“WOLF Classic Cabinets have quickly built a following among the independent dealers we serve,” said Jim Groff, WOLF’s chief marketing officer. “By creating this second Facebook giveaway, we’re able to extend that excitement to builders, homeowners and others, and respond to the enormous popularity of our August giveaway.”

WOLF developed its cabinet line as part of a broad strategic shift that began in 2010. The company, once a traditional two-step distributor, has positioned itself as a sourcing company that focuses on identifying or developing products designed solely to meet the needs of independent dealers.

Mead Lumber grows in Nebraska, S.D.

BY Brae Canlen

Mead Lumber, the regional LBM chain with locations in seven Midwestern states, has purchased four locations of Fullerton Building Center, according to an announcement on its website.  

The stores are located in Yankton, S.D., and Vermillion, Winner, and Norfolk, Neb. Fullerton will still operate its lumberyards in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

“The geographic location and size of these stores make them a great fit for Mead Lumber’s growth plans,” said Craig Bradshaw, president of Mead Lumber.

Founded in 1910 by Morton Mead in Ashland, Neb., Mead Lumber is now headquartered in Columbus, Neb. Ranked 34th on the HCN Pro Dealer Scoreboard, the company operates 35 lumberyards, truss plants, hardware stores and mill shops in Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wyoming. Annual sales in 2010 were estimated at $104 million.

Mead Lumber has also recently purchased Sonny’s Ace Hardware of Canon City, Colo., as well as another hardware store location in Pierre, Colo., through its Knecht Home Centers division.

Bradshaw told the Yankton Press and Dakotan, “We’ve been very fortunate during these times and have had some great opportunities to acquire some good retailers. We plan to continue to grow, and we’re actively still looking at other stores.”

Aldrich Lumber to make way for federal courthouse building

BY Brae Canlen

Aldrich Lumber, a fixture in Billings, Mont., since 1937, is relocating to the edge of town and downsizing its business into a specialty dealer of pole barns and riding arenas, according to an article in the Billings Gazette.

The Aldrich family has been in the lumber business since 1917, when the grandfather of the current owner, Greg Aldrich, bought lumber companies in Wyoming and Montana.

Aldrich Lumber will soon be razed and the site used for a $30 million, five-story government building. The building will serve as office space to the downtown federal courthouse now under construction.

The Boyer Co. of Salt Lake City will be in charge of both building projects and intends to work throughout the winter. Some 400 federal employees who now work at the James F. Battin Courthouse in Billings must move because of asbestos problems.
