Casco, Maine-based Hancock Lumber is no stranger to accolades. It’s been named a Best Place to Work in Maine for eight straight years. Company CEO Kevin Hancock is not only an award-winning CEO, he’s an award-winning author.
And during a ceremony at the upcoming ProDealer Industry Summit in Washington, D.C., Hancock Lumber will add another accolade to its collection: ProDealer of the Year.
The 2022 honoree is a seventh-generation family-owned business with 12 lumberyards in Maine and New Hampshire – plus several manufacturing facilities and design showrooms. Last year marked an active year of growth for the diverse business, as it acquired Winnipesaukee Lumber and Lapointe Lumber, bringing two more family-owned businesses under the Hancock fold.
The annual ProDealer of the Year award, selected by the editors of HBSDealer in concert with the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association, is designed to recognize a high-performance lumberyard with a commitment to best practices and the best values of the lumber and building material industry.
The ProDealer of the Year award ceremony, one of the highlights of the annual ProDealer Industry Summit – held this year March 29-April 3 —is slated for April 1 in Washington, D.C. Sponsoring this year's ProDealer of the Year Award ceremony is Simpson Strong-Tie.
