Eastern Engineered Wood Products, a wholesale distributor of structural wood products used in residential and light-commercial construction, is expanding with a new distribution center in Emporia, Va.

The 15-acre parcel, in close proximity to Interstate 95 and U.S. 58 in southern Virginia, will expand the company’s delivery footprint from western Connecticut to North Carolina and include new large markets such as Washington, D.C.; Richmond and Virginia Beach, along with  the Raleigh/Durham, Greensboro, and Wilmington, N.C. markets.

Similar to its distribution center in Bethlehem, Pa., the new location will be dedicated exclusively to the sale of engineered wood products (EWP).

The new facility will stock RigidLam LVL and RFPI series I-Joists from Roseburg Forest Products, NI series I-Joists from Nordic Structures, and StructurePRO Treated Glulam. It will be supported during startup up by the Bethlehem center.

“We’ve recognized for some time now that our high-service model would be well suited for this market,” said Todd Lindsey, president of Eastern Engineered Wood Products. “We are excited about the opportunity to introduce our unique value proposition to customers in this new territory and to simplify what is often considered one of their most complex product offerings.”

Eastern Engineered Wood Products designs and distributes structural floor and roof systems to the pro contractor trade through a network of retail lumber yards and truss manufacturers. The company’s services include technical design and CAD services, cutting product to size for application on individual projects, and just-in-time delivery.
