Raleigh, North Carolina-based Stock Building Supply opened two new structural component plants, one in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, market and the other near Salt Lake City.
In Middlesex, North Carolina, production of roof and floor trusses recently began in a 36,000-sq.-ft. location. This facility will join existing store and distribution locations in Raleigh, Apex, Johnston County and Franklin County to serve Raleigh-Durham and adjacent markets in North Carolina.
"Our sales and service teams are excited about this increased ability to provide local home builders and remodeling contractors with a market-leading structural component offering, which includes trusses, prefabricated wall panels, engineered wood and the unparalleled customer service provided by our associates,” said Rick Vancil, general manager of the Raleigh-Durham market.
In Salt Lake City, roof and floor truss manufacturing has been relocated to a larger and more strategically positioned 60,000-sq.-ft. facility. This new location, serviced by rail spur access, will also provide additional capacity for lumber and building materials distribution. It joins an existing component plant in Lindon and store locations in West Jordan, Layton and Park City.
Fritz Froerer, general manager of the Utah market, said: "We have served home builders and contractors in the Salt Lake Valley for over 100 years, and structural components are a key element of our product and service offering. This new location will allow us to build on our local leadership with enhanced production capacity, reduced lead times and continued high standards for quality."
The company now has 15 component plants. In all, Stock operates 69 facilities across 14 states.
