Carter Lumber expands in Charlotte

Kent, Ohio-based Carter Lumber continues down the expansion trail by opening a new location on the north side of Charlotte. 

The facility located at 4401 Pete Brown Rd. in Charlotte made its first deliveries Monday, five days after taking possession.

“Carter Lumber’s growth plan is to expand and make investments into markets within our existing footprint,” said Jeff Donley, president and chief operating officer for Carter Lumber. “Entering the Charlotte market is a natural extension of our progression in the Southeast, and we look forward to building relationships with customers and being the best lumberyard in the market.”

With two facilities in the market, Carter Lumber will now be able to provide service from the south side with our lumberyard in Rock Hill, South Carolina (35 miles away), and the north side with this new location. The 14-acre full service lumberyard will offer rough framing lumber, engineered components and place a heavy emphasis on millwork products.

Managing the market operations will be a team led by Brandon Kujawski and Brian Massie.

“As we expand our southeast operations, we were looking for a location to support the growth of our core business in lumber and millwork. Having this second location is a great start to let us work toward becoming Charlotte’s employer of choice and the professional builder’s supplier of choice, said Kip Gleckler, senior VP field operations for Carter Lumber. 

Carter operates more than 144 stores and manufacturing facilities in 12 states.
