84 Lumber, the nation’s largest privately held supplier of building materials, is pleased to announce the opening of its latest facility in Cartersville, Georgia as part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans.

Cartersville, Georgia truss plant

The new truss plant, scheduled to open by late December, is located on an 18-acre plot at 91 Riverside Drive, Cartersville, Georgia. It will service and support the busy, dynamic Atlanta market. This truss plant will also work in tandem with the existing plant in Oxford, Georgia, bringing component manufacturing capabilities to more customers.

“With thousands in annual housing starts in the past decade alone, Atlanta is one of the fastest-growing markets, which is why we decided to expand our footprint here,” said 84 Lumber Vice President of Installed Sales and Manufacturing Ken Kucera. “84 Lumber has made it a priority to invest time and resources in this growing market.”

The company has been servicing the Atlanta market since the early 1970s and greatly expanded its footprint during the 2000s housing boom. 84 Lumber later opened an additional lumberyard, as well as a dedicated window shop to keep up with market demand.

In addition to this new truss plant, 84 Lumber recently opened a new door shop in Denver, Colorado, and expanding in the state of California. 84 Lumber is also opening component plants in Winter Haven, Florida; Columbia, South Carolina; and Boise, Idaho.
