Do it Best Corp. has named Josh Ratcliff as its Division Manager of Forest Products, effective immediately.
Ratcliff joined the co-op in 2018, most recently serving as the Division Manager of Lumber and Reload Operations.
He will lead a team of product sales managers who purchase and sell dimensional lumber products, as well as panels, treated lumber, and engineered wood. Josh and his team will continue pushing for aggressive growth in panels while enhancing treated lumber and engineered wood sales.
“We are confident that Josh’s move allows for an increased focus on providing greater opportunities for our LBM member-owners,” said Vice President of Lumber and Building Materials Gary Nackers. “We are continuing to invest in our team to serve our members even better and optimize our vendor partnerships.”
“Our company is better positioned today to capitalize on significant growth opportunities while maintaining the most efficient operations in our industry,” said Mike Ter Molen, director of LBM Operations.
With annual sales nearing $4 billion, Do it Best Corp. is a lumber and hardware cooperative based in Fort Wayne, Ind. The co-op serves thousands of member-owned locations across the United States and in more than 50 other countries.
