At LMC Annual, Ryan reports $7.8 billion in purchases during 2022

Charlotte, N.C. — The LMC dealer and supplier community met in Charlotte, North Carolina from March 8-10 for the 2023 LMC Annual. Over three days, LMC Dealers networked, made purchases for the upcoming peak building season, participated in educational sessions, and tackled the shared problems facing the industry.

Kicking off the event with his welcome note, LMC President & CEO Paul Ryan reported stable growth for LMC in 2022 with $7.8 billion in purchases, despite deflation in wood products. He also welcomed the addition of 25 new dealers to the LMC network in 2022. Following Ryan’s speech was the keynote and best-selling author Brant Menswar, who spoke on a subject well-aligned to the LMC ethos: building a resilient, adaptable, and values-based culture.

This year’s winner of the best new product was AdvanTech X-Factor Subflooring from Huber Engineered Woods. Second place was Generac’s Portable Power Station. Third place was Onward’s EVO Sliding Barndoor System.

Featured In the exhibit hall was the ModernView Pavilion, a showcase of the LMC private label window, doors, and cabinet programs. A new website, with visualizer, was introduced in the pavilion as well. In addition, the Huber “Prove It Tour” Trailer appeared on the show floor, providing attendees with the opportunity to engage with Huber product experts on the latest innovative products.

Dealers, Exhibitors, and LMC staff also raced to Charlotte’s legendary NASCAR Hall of Fame for a big party to top off the event. Attendees tested their skills in the race car simulators and explored hands-on exhibits while enjoying relaxed time with the wider LMC community. “The King” Richard Petty detailed stories from his 35-year career, afterwards welcoming attendees on stage for a photo opportunity.

“This year’s Annual was a tremendous success. Networking and connecting with Dealers is a critical component of ensuring they have a valuable year ahead with the tools and resources needed to thrive. The opportunity to connect in-person with the LMC network and maintain our relationships is an exceptional experience,” said Senior Vice President of Purchasing, Sean Tighe.
