Distributor joins NLBMDA
The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association welcomed Portland, Maine-based Emery-Waterhouse into membership of the association's Manufacturers and Services Council.
The MSC is composed of the leading building material manufacturers and service providers serving the LBM industry.
"We are very excited to be a member of NLBMDA as Emery-Waterhouse expands its pro dealer reach to a national level,” said Levi Robbins, VP of national sales. “It's clear that the focus and values of the members, both retailers and vendors, align with our company's; Emery-Waterhouse wants to bring knowledge, growth and opportunities to our industry. We hope to offer NLBMDA members access to additional products and knowledge and to participate in strengthening the association and its protection of the lumber and building materials industries interests," said Levi Robbins, VP of national sales.
The distributor provides paint, fastener and power tool assortments and complete hand tools, plumbing, electrical, lawn and garden, winter goods, housewares, automotive, marine, and cleaning assortments. They offer a 98% fill-rate on over 1500 professional brands and have the widest breadth of fasteners in the industry.
Oak Brook, Ill.-based Ace Hardware Corp. acquired Emery-Waterhouse in early 2014.
