WASHINGTON, D.C. — The last 12 months proved difficult but lucrative, with demand high, supply challenged and labor tested. 

Similarly, it was a difficult year for the selection committee of the ProDealer of the Year Awards, as the industry rose to the challenge in remarkable ways from coast to coast. Ultimately, two prestigious awards were delivered to deserving pro dealers during the 2022 ProDealer Industry Summit. 

Espy Lumber Co. of Hilton Head, S.C., accepted the Independent ProDealer of the Year Award; and Hancock Lumber Co. of Casco, Maine, received the national ProDealer of the Year Award. 

The ProDealer of the Year program recognizes high-performance lumberyard companies that demonstrate a commitment to the best practices and the best values of the LBM industry.

Also during the closing day of the three-day ProDealer Industry Summit, attendees tackled the topics of builder-dealer relationships, succession-planning best practices, leveraging diversity in the workforce and managing an unpredictable supply chain.

The event was co-hosted by HBSDealer and the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association

"We are excited to continue our commitment to providing a forum to deliver critical information, educational sessions, and networking opportunities to the lumber and building material dealer community," said Jonathan Payne, president and CEO of the NLBDMA.
