Cameron Ashley opens new Michigan distribution center
Cameron Ashley Building Products, Inc. is taking orders at its latest distribution center in Delta Township, Mich.
“We are expanding our service to Michigan and its surrounding markets, which will allow us to increase our ability to support existing and future customers,” said Tom Gaffney, Cameron Ashley regional vice president. “Our expansion in Delta Township is essential for providing on-ground inventory close to our customers, and the ability to support their sales through our products with sales, marketing and merchandising is a win-win situation.”
This new facility will serve customers in the greater Lansing, Mich. market. The building products distributor specializes in roofing, insulation, gypsum, siding and other specialty building products, and will focus on residential building products at the Delta Township location.
Additionally, Cameron Ashley said that the Lansing Community College’s (LCC) Business & Community Institute will play a key role in workforce training support by routing employee state withholding taxes into a dedicated customizable training fund through the Michigan New Jobs Training Program.
Cameron Ashley said it anticipates making new hires at the facility. Companywide, the distributor employs about 550 associates.
“Our region has seen a steady flow of construction since 2019 across various industries, with over $3 billion in active construction,” said Bob Trezise, president and CEO of Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP). “To have a leading building products distributor enter our market reaffirms our region’s growth trajectory. As usual, many partnerships were needed to assist Cameron Ashley in locating in Delta Township, from township leaders to our great partners at LCC.”
In total, Cameron Ashley operates a network of more than 40 locations with a total storage footprint of over 4.2 million square feet in 20 states. The company serves more than 5,000 customers in the lumber and building materials industry.
