About Us

LBM Journal is the leading media company serving lumberyards, building material distributors, wholesalers, manufacturers, and service providers — otherwise known as the lumber/building material (LBM) distribution channel. Founded in 2003, LBM Journal is published in both print and digital editions (11x per year). The popular LBM Alert e-newsletter delivers industry news and insights each week, and the website is packed with resources, including a free, searchable and downloadable archive of back issues. Subscriptions to LBM Journal are free to qualified industry pros.

Our mission is simple: to deliver a mix of strategic, street-level business intelligence with a big picture perspective of where our industry is, and where it’s going. Our goal: to give our readers the insights and tools that they need to thrive in an extremely competitive industry, and to provide advertisers with a compelling, entertaining and credible vehicle to deliver their message.
