Nominations are now open for ProDealer of the Year
An award program seeks to recognize high performance and industry values.
HBSDealer has proudly recognized high-performing lumberyards since the late 20th century, creating a roll-call of past honorees that have shown growth, leadership and the values of the building supply industry.
The tradition continues in 2021, and HBSDealer and our partners at the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association request the help of all industry stakeholders as we identify our ProDealers of the Year for 2021.
Our official online nomination form is here.
The criteria remains the same for both our national ProDealer of the year (six or more units), and our Independent ProDealer of the Year (five of fewer units).

In 2020, National Lumber, based in Massachusetts, and Townsend Building Supply of Dothan, Ala., joined the exclusive club. They were officially recognized in a presentation and celebration during the 2020 ProDealer Industry Summit, a virtual event.
In a statement that reflects the spirit of the awards program, Margie Kaitz Seligman, co-CEO of National Lumber, said: "We're proud to carry on the family tradition of working hard and caring deeply about our family, our employees, our vendors, and our customers."
