84 Lumber Names Southeast Forest Products as 2020 Vendor of the Year
84 Lumber, the nation’s largest privately held building materials supplier, today announced its 2020 Vendor of the Year: Southeast Forest Products. The award is presented every year and is based on various factors including sales growth and above-and-beyond service.
“Southeast Forest Products has been an outstanding partner this year and has gone above and beyond with its communication, dependability and commitment to partnership,” said 84 Lumber Chief Procurement Officer Troy Dally. “Southeast is always equally concerned about our stores as we are, proving that they see themselves as an extension of our team. They work hard to support our dedicated store associates, and they proactively communicate information consistently and efficiently.”
This commitment from Southeast Forest Products allowed it to significantly grow sales with 84 Lumber while maintaining solid lead times. Southeast’s business is up 80 percent, and its lead time is the lowest of all of 84 Lumber’s suppliers.
“Southeast doesn’t just ‘talk the talk,’ but they back that talk up with action,” said Dally. “Even during times with significant shortages in the treated lumber market, Southeast kept us in supply. We are proud to present them with this well-deserved recognition this year!”
Southeast Forest Products is your all-in-one, premier supplier of all treated lumber needs. With four decades of experience and a diverse array of both products and services, it has everything you need to live life beyond the porch.
“We highly value our partnership with 84 Lumber and are very humbled and honored to be recognized as the 2020 Vendor of the Year,” said Southeast Forest Products Owner Guice Slawson. “We consistently strive to provide our customers with quality products and excellent service; Anytime, Anywhere. Credit for this award goes to our sales, purchasing and production teams who work tirelessly to provide exceptional customer service, and this award is a validation of those efforts.”
84 Lumber is continuing its expansion plans, with new stores opening soon in California, Idaho and Michigan. To learn more about 84 Lumber, follow the company on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
