A month ahead of its Annual Meeting and Trade Show event in Orlando, New Windsor, N.Y.-based LBM Advantage revealed the co-op’s four 2018 “Vendors of the Year.”

Selected from four main building products categories, vendors are evaluated on a list of criteria that includes sales growth, gross margin, customer support and product quality. And the winners were:

Commodities: Guardian Building Products;

Specialties: Orgill;

Millwork: Wolf Home Products; and

Kitchen & Bath: MasterBrand Cabinets.

These vendors will be recognized at the LBM Advantage event in Orlando, Feb. 18-20 at the Rosen Centre & Orange County Convention Center, where a “Blueprint for Success” theme will be in play.

The event will be the second since LBM Advantage merged with North Carolina-based LBM co-op IBSA. Since the merger, the combined co-op has added more than 90 locations. It currently has 1,100 member locations in 36 states.

According to President and CEO Steve Salla, momentum is building as the company expands westward. “Advantage is fulfilling its mission to provide a competitive advantage for our members by leveraging their collective power” Sallah said.
