Boise Cascade Adding Distribution Centers in Two New Markets
Boise Cascade’s Building Materials Distribution (“BMD” or the “Company”) division announced the expansion of its distribution capacity in two markets.
The Company finalized the acquisition of 45-acres in Walterboro, SC, to build a new distribution facility. Located approximately 45 miles west of Charleston, the property will be Boise Cascade’s first distribution center in the state. The location is rail-served and will help better serve customers in Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and Columbia, SC, as well as Savannah, GA. The BMD division currently services these markets through its facilities in Greensboro, NC, and Atlanta, GA.
The Company also closed on the purchase of a 34-acre land parcel in Hondo, Texas to build another new distribution facility. Located approximately 40 miles west of San Antonio, TX, this property will be the third Boise Cascade distribution center in the state, along with its two door shops in Houston and Dallas. The property is rail-served and will help serve customers in Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and the Rio Grande Valley.
“Consistent with our strategy, these investments demonstrate our commitment to our customers and supplier partners in several high-growth markets,” said Jeff Strom, BMD Executive Vice President. “We are thrilled to increase our diversification of product offerings. This will allow us to expand in engineered wood products, leading brands of general line building materials, as well as lumber and panels products.”
Jim Wickham, Vice President of Eastern Operations, commented, “We are very excited to expand our footprint into these markets. This will help us grow in these geographies and also provide deeper penetration in the local market for the facilities that are currently serving these areas, allowing us to be closer to our customers.”
Construction is expected to begin soon.
