BMC expands its reach in greater Houston

Just one day after announcing the opening of a distribution center in Denver, BMC is at it again -- this time with a new lumberyard in Houston.

BMC announced the opening of the Houston yard today, describing it as a boost to its Greater Houston capacity, which now extends to a 100-mile delivery radius.

“Houston, and the state of Texas, continue to lead the nation in demand for lumber, and we will continue to invest resources in the region that benefit our customers and deliver value,” said Peter Alexander, CEO of BMC. “This lumberyard is one example where our customers will reap the rewards of that investment as they realize increased service level, more capacity in the Houston area, quick response time and greater depth of inventory."

The new lumberyard, located at 7355 West Rd., will work with BMC's Houston millwork operations -- a 250,000-sq.-ft. facility and a 100,000-sq.-ft. facility that provide millwork distribution, manufacturing and custom millwork production.

Products carried at the lumberyard include: I-Joists and engineered wood products, dimensional framing lumber, panel products and job site construction supplies. Additionally, this facility can provide pre-manufactured roof trusses and custom-built timber trusses.

Houston market LBM manager Kyle Williams, an industry veteran with 29 years of experience all in Texas, will oversee the lumberyard.
