Pennsylvania-based 84 Lumber, a privately owned national supplier of building materials, announced its latest expansion plans yesterday, which include several new stores and a component plant to open in California.
The new locations, detailed in a Nov. 20 news release, are part of 84 Lumber's growing footprint in the West and include new stores in Stockton, Lancaster, and the city of Riverside, the last of the three being the site previously known as Champion Lumber.
The company also said plans include a truss plant in Bakersfield as well as a framing yard there. The new sites, along with established stores in Bakersfield, Clovis, and Beaumont, will bring 84 Lumber's presence to eight total locations in the Golden State.
"The new stores and component plant are examples of 84 Lumber's dedication and continued commitment to better serve our customers and communities," said 84 Lumber COO Frank Cicero. "I'm excited to watch these stores grow and develop over the next five years; 84 Lumber is committed to California, and we look forward to providing more opportunities for our associates in these markets."
Included in the company’s announcement was the announced expansion of an 84 Lumber component plant in Yuma, Ariz., which will offer service in Southern California. Future stores are planned for Reno, Nev., and developing a presence in the Northern California-Salinas coastal region.
84 Lumber currently operates 310 facilities nationwide, including 234 stores, 14 component manufacturing plants, 28 engineered wood product centers and 34 door shops.
"Growing our business in the state of California is exciting for me because it's where I'm from and where everything began for me at 84,” said Jorge Espinoza, the divisional vice president for the Western division. “The Western division of 84 is on a fantastic path of expansion."
