Carter Lumber has 146 locations in 12 states, 3,100 employees, and $1.15 billion in 2015 revenue, according to a press release.
“While a lot has changed in our industry over the last ten years, one thing that has remained constant is the importance of having strong, trusted partners when you go to market. MiTek saw the opportunity in Carter Lumber early on and dived in headfirst, an act that has had a profound and positive impact on both companies. It is because of this unwavering commitment that MiTek was our 2015 Vendor of the Year,” said Jeff Donley, President and COO of Carter Lumber.
“As we continue our growth, we often find ourselves in situations where the status quo doesn’t cut it any longer. As a result, it is important for us to align ourselves with partners like MiTek who can offer us flexibility, resources and the lateral thinking required to keep pace,” added Adam Lombard, Vice President of Product Management for Carter Lumber.
The MiTek relationship with Carter now includes not only the core component manufacturing partnership, but also the offering through its Builder Products division. The products and software now available to Carter include MiTek’s full range of building products and brands assembled after a series of acquisitions. These product brands include USP® Structural Connectors, the Z4 Tie-Down System, and the Hardy Frame® Shear Wall System.
“Just to count Carter Lumber as one of our customers has been an honor at MiTek. So, the fact that Carter has named us ‘2015 Vendor of the Year’ is all the more humbling. I know I speak for our entire team when I say that we couldn’t be more pleased with this award. Equally important is that we have been entrusted as a key trade partner,” said Tom Mort, MiTek Builder Products’ Senior VP for Sales and Marketing.
