Cameron Ashley Building Products announced the opening of its newest location in Little Rock, Ark. The new distribution center will stock roofing, insulation, drywall, siding, as well as all the associated accessories for delivery to customers' job sites and locations.
"Little Rock is the fourth new location for Cameron Ashley this year, and we are excited to grow our service area to better serve our existing customers while pursuing new opportunities," said President and CEO Donny DeMarie.
District Manager Jason Walker said the company is excited to expand into the central Arkansas region, which like many others, has been hit hard by storms and other natural disasters.
"Our new location will give us greater service capabilities and faster delivery. Also, the large size of this facility will allow us to have a robust inventory in all core categories — ready for next-day delivery in central Arkansas," he said. "We will be stocking a full line of roofing and roofing accessories to help ease some of the local supply chain issues."
The new location is the latest development in Cameron Ashley's strategy to expand its national footprint. In July, it opened its first distribution center in Sacramento, Calif. Distribution Center Manager Josh Jerles said the Little Rock facility will put Cameron Ashley in the "heart of Arkansas" and allow the company to partner with customers in local communities.
"Little Rock, combined with our existing Springdale and Memphis locations, allows us to provide our fast same day/next day delivery to the entire northern part of the state," Jerles said. "I am thrilled to be part of the team and to assist our customers to Play to Win!"
