Carter Lumber opens a new location in Knoxville, TN
Carter Lumber continues grow its business in the Southeastern US, as today they are adding a new location in Knoxville, Tennessee. The company’s first location in the state of Tennessee will be a centrally located 10-acre facility six miles outside of Downtown Knoxville. Focused exclusively on professional builder customers, the location will begin making its first deliveries during the beginning of May. This is the sixth new location the company has opened since the start of 2014.
“We’re very excited to expand into Tennessee with this new location as we continue our mission to be the number one lumber and building materials dealer in every market we service,” said Jeff Donley, President & COO of Carter Lumber. “Knoxville is a great area. It has a robust economy and a strong housing market; one that we believe will continue to grow. As I’ve said in the past, we are going to seize every opportunity we can to grow our business by adding new locations in markets that fit our business model.”
The new location in Knoxville will be under the management of Brian Massie, Vice President of the Southeast, who is currently responsible for many of the company’s Southern Markets, including Atlanta, Charlotte, Winston-Salem and Greenville. Glenn Holston, a 20-year veteran of the lumber industry, has been chosen to assemble and lead the sales force for the Knoxville Metropolitan area.
“While our competitors and their employees are busy being worried about buyouts, store closings and consolidations, Carter Lumber continues to be focused on steady growth throughout our, now 12 state, footprint. Builders and building materials industry professionals know that if they want to be partners with a company they can count on for the long-term, that company is Carter Lumber. We continue to show why we are the supplier of choice and employer of choice in every market we service,” said Kip Gleckler, Senior Vice President of Field Operations for Carter Lumber.
