Stock Building Supply opens new location in Virginia

Stock Building Supply, the industry’s second largest pro dealer, is opening a new location in Yorktown, Va. The 10,500-square-foot facility will serve commercial contractors with hollow metal frames and doors, wood doors and commercial hardware. Staffing will include an architectural hardware consultant and a certified fire door inspector.

The Yorktown location, which opened on March 3, will be the 299th U.S. branch for Raleigh, N.C.-based Stock.

"I look forward to introducing Stock Building Supply into the Tidewater area and enhancing our relationships with builders and contractors in this market," Jim Herrmann, general manager for Stock, said in a written release.

Stock’s most recent financial figures, released by parent company Wolseley on Jan. 21, showed a loss of $49.3 million for the five-month period ending on Dec. 31, 2007. Sales for fiscal 2007 were reported at $4.6 billion.
