In addition to new stores, 84 Lumber is opening component plants in Winter Haven, Florida; Columbia, South Carolina; Boise, Idaho; and a second plant in Atlanta, Georgia. Regarding new EWP facilities, the current Atlanta facility is being relocated to a larger location in Cartersville, Georgia and new centers will be opened in the New Jersey and Boston markets. To round out the company’s extensive expansion plans, a new door shop is coming to Denver, Colorado.

"With the opening of these new stores and manufacturing facilities, we remain strong in our continued prospect for growth," said 84 Lumber President Maggie Hardy. “We value our customers and listen to what is important to them to grow their businesses. As a result, we are growing and expanding in two ways – opening new locations and investing in existing markets.”

“I’m immensely proud of the performance of our company over the last several years,” said Hardy. "We have the right people, and we are supporting our associates and customers with the necessary resources to take our company to the next level. I’m committed to growing this company the 84 way and continuing to provide more opportunities for our associates.”
