Lastest 84 Lumber door shop opens in S.C.
84 Lumber has opened a new door shop and engineered wood products (EWP) hub in Greenville, S.C.
Officially opened in March, the shop is now serving customers. The new 58,000-square-foot facility currently runs one interior door line with plans to open an exterior door line by early July as well as a second interior line eventually.
The store employs 10 associates to date and hopes to more than double its staffing as the business grows.
When the new Greenville store opened, 84 Lumber also relocated some of the engineered wood products operation to Wellford, S.C. The addition of the EWP plant in Wellford will increase the production capacity by nearly 50 percent.
“The Wellford/Spartanburg area is an area we are targeting for future growth, so having a location there will set us up for success and allow us to better service our customers in those markets,” said Matt Rinck, area manager at 84 Lumber. “I’m proud of the work our team has been doing in this region and look forward to continued success.”
The company is also moving forward with its other expansion plans around the country. The Mansfield, Ohio components plant is currently under construction and will soon provide trusses, floor panels and much more to the surrounding area. Additionally, 84 Lumber is moving forward with plans to expand to Stockton, Calif.; Boise, Idaho; and Detroit along with additional locations.
Frank Cicero, chief operating officer at 84 Lumber, discussed the company's expansion plans with HBSDealer earlier this year.
Based in Eight Four, Pa., 84 Lumber operates about 250 stores, component plants, door and millwork shops, and EWP centers in over 30 states.
