BOISE, Idaho, May 09, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Boise Cascade’s Building Materials Distribution (BMD) division today announced it has finalized the purchase of a five-acre site in Birmingham, AL.
The property is adjacent to the Company’s existing rail-served location, which was acquired in 2019.
"Since its integration into the Boise Cascade nationwide network, the Birmingham branch has grown to serve the increasing demand of engineered wood, specialty building products and commodities in the marketplace," said Brian Cullen, Southeast Region Manager. "Our customers can continue to expect the very highest level of service and availability with the expanded site as we partner with many of the top specialty building brands in the industry."
"The Birmingham expansion will increase our ability to serve our customers with a much deeper line of Boise Cascade engineered wood products," said Jeff Strom, BMD Executive Vice President. "Consistent with our strategy, the investment demonstrates our commitment to high-growth markets. We are excited to add several new products and go much deeper with others in both general line and commodities."
Strom adds that the additional acreage will also provide some operational efficiencies.
