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.

To further service our Atlanta customers to the fullest, Carter Lumber has expanded its three store locations in Georgia to include a Carter Components Plant in Oakwood, Georgia.
The company-owned plant supplies the Atlanta market with pre-fabricated wall panels, interior/exterior doors, engineered wood products, and roof and floor trusses.
Manufacturing these products within the company allows Carter Lumber to supply our customers with high quality products at a fair price. Our goal is to help customers reduce framing time, analyze efficiency, reduce material waste, and cut costs on projects.
Contact your Carter Lumber store to see how our Components Plants can benefit you.
We are proud to announce we’ve opened a new Carter Lumber Kitchen and Bath Showroom in Medina, Ohio. The new showroom, located at 3725 Medina Road, Suite 108, will service the areas of Akron, Elyria, Solon, and Medina. Terry Shepler, who worked at our former Medina store as the Plumbing Manager, now oversees the Medina location as Showroom Manager. Assisting Terry is Michael Schank, Kitchen Sales Representative. We are excited to return to the Medina area and look forward to serving its residents.
Carter Lumber has expanded again by opening a new location on the north side of Charlotte. The new 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. 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,” said Jeff Donley President and Chief Operating Officer for Carter Lumber.
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, SC (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 Vice President Field Operations for Carter Lumber.
Building A Strong Future
Carter-Jones to be re-branded as Carter Lumber and combine forces with Medina, OH staff
Carter Lumber has taken another step to create the area’s strongest lumberyard by combining the teams from the Medina, OH location with Carter-Jones Lumber in Akron, OH. The new team will operate out of the original store located at 172 N. Case Avenue. In addition, the facility will change names and operate under the Carter Lumber brand name.
“When my grandfather W. E. Carter started the company in 1932, he had the foresight to build a family business that would stand the test of time. His philosophy was to be a leader and make changes to secure future growth. Throughout the last few years, we have lived by these principles and have adapted our business to the ever changing needs of our customers and the markets in which we operate”, said Neil Sackett Carter Lumber Chairman & CEO.
This “new’ team will service the Akron and surrounding markets under the Carter Lumber brand name. By combining together, customers will continue to experience all the benefits of working with one of the nation’s largest lumberyards with a much larger facility and expanded service capabilities.
Effective immediately, the Carter Lumber Medina stores will be closed and all business and employees will be transferred to the Akron location. The Medina facility has been a very successful operation that simply outgrew the confines of the location. The newest/oldest Carter Lumber will be co-managed by Tony Shannon the current Carter-Jones General Manager and Jeff Brady from Medina.
“In evaluating the Akron market, we saw a tremendous opportunity to service customers out of a much larger facility that could handle the increased volume. The Carter Lumber brand name is one of the strongest in the industry and we look forward combining these teams and creating the area’s best full service lumberyard”, said Jeff Donley President and COO for Carter Lumber.
While we are sure everyone is sick of hearing the words “Polar Vortex”, it hasn’t stopped the progress at Carter Lumber. In another operational move, Carter Lumber is kicking off the year in the same manner it ended 2013, on a positive note.
Carter Lumber has announced today that they will be opening a new facility in Elyria, Ohio. This new location will provide a better service facility for the western suburbs of Cleveland. The store will be located at 41625 Griswold Rd, Elyria Ohio on the site previously occupied by Del Lumber. Employees for the new location won’t have far to travel as the Carter Lumber in Sheffield Village, Ohio (3 miles away) will be closing. While the Sheffield Village facility has been very successful, it simply outgrew the confines of the location. Carter Lumber is currently working through logistics and plans on the full service lumberyard being operational in March.
“Since 1932, Carter Lumber has called Northeast Ohio home. By investing in our hometown, Carter Lumber is well positioned to service these markets from the west side of Cleveland, to the east side and down south into Akron” said Jeff Donley, Carter Lumber President & COO.
