Buffalo Grove, Ill.-based Edward Hines Lumber, a subsidiary of US LBM Holdings, will open a full-service building supply center and showroom in May in the Chicago area.
The new facility will occupy the site of the former Franklin Emery (F.E.) Wheaton Lumberyard. The downtown Wheaton, Ill., property has been vacant since F.E. Wheaton closed in 2010. The new lumberyard will be managed by former F.E. Wheaton
general manager of 28 years, Pat Briody.
