About King Lumber
The beginning for us was 1977. We purchased King
Lumber from Mr. King, who, after many years, was preparing
to retire. This King Lumber yard has been in
operation since the 1890s, functioning continuously for more
than 100 years.
A major reason for our growth is our commitment to stocking
large and varied amounts of inventory. We are truly a
full-service yard. We have sufficient inventory on hand to
supply a builder with the materials he needs, whether he is
building one house or several houses at one time.
CEO Peter Lockwood
During the course of a year, we sell enough lumber to
stretch from coast to coast. Our inventory is complete, from
the foundation to the roof. That inventory includes interior
and exterior doors, windows, interior and exterior trim,
siding, insulation, sheet rock, trusses and roofing. In
other words, we carry everything from 'soup to nuts.'
We are not a department store, we are a personalized lumber
service. Not only are we involved in construction, we work
directly with the building community, from the small builder
to the largest developer and we service homeowners as well.
Knowledge, Quality, Competitive Prices
The management of King Lumber follows what they
describe as a very simple formula for business success. They
concentrate in the three main areas customers deem
important. Those are
a) knowledgeable, professional service
b) quality, name brand materials
c) competitive prices
Our staff is the best, service-oriented sales team in this
area's building supply business. Our salespeople are
experienced, trained specialists. Each salesperson
specializes in a different part of our business. We have
sales people who specialize in the framing of a house,
millwork, windows and decorative, upscale hardware.
We send our sales people to manufacturer training seminars.
They attend window seminars, millwork seminars, and
engineered wood seminars. In addition, our manufacturers'
reps are here every week. The reps do a good job of keeping
our sales specialists up-to-date on a one-to-one basis. They
supply new product literature, inform us about new products
and constantly update us on new construction techniques.
