Eastern Engineered Wood Products acquires property and opens a new distribution center near Keysville, Virginia. The 32-acre parcel is located in Virginia’s Heartland Regional Industrial Park.
Construction will be completed later this year and the facility will include offices, cutting buildings, a drive-thru storage building and vertical shelving. Approximately 22 acres of the site will be finished for inventory. It will replace a smaller leased facility the company occupies in Emporia, Virginia, and expand the current delivery footprint to new markets farther west in Virginia and North Carolina. It will also serve customers in Washington DC and parts of Maryland.
Similar to the model of its distribution center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the new location will be exclusively dedicated to the sale and distribution of engineered wood products (EWP).
“Our commitment to creating an exceptional customer experience ensures that our customers can expect accurate and on-time delivery of parts, work packages or truckloads of material within one to two days. Even more important than stocking large inventories, hiring and training talented people is essential for us to meet the needs of our customers,” says Todd Lindsey, president of Eastern Engineered Wood Products.
At full capacity, the company plans to provide up to 20 or more full-time jobs in Keysville and surrounding areas.
Eastern Engineered Wood Products distributes structural flooring and roofing systems to professional contractors through a network of lumber retailers and truss manufacturers.
