Kempsville Building Materials recently completed the addition of a new facility in Richmond, Virginia, allowing it to better serve its professional builder customers in the market. The new facility, on 18 acres and with a 120,000 square-foot warehouse, is strategically located in the Airport Industrial Park in Henrico, Virginia.
Kempsville Building Materials, with 50 employees in the Richmond market, has served professional builders there for the past 10 years out of two smaller facilities. However, with the market’s continued growth and to meet their customers’ demands, Kempsville consolidated the two existing locations into this new, larger facility in June.
“This facility uniquely positions us for growth in a market that ranks as one of the nation’s ‘Top 50 Best Places to Live.’ With our commitment to partnering with our customers for their future growth, we invested in this location to be able to service the expanding needs of our loyal customers in the Richmond Metro area. This location’s larger footprint and warehouse space will also allow us to add ten employees shortly to service the specialized needs of builders in this market,” said Greg Harrell, vice president of sales for Kempsville.
Kempsville Building Materials is a division of the Carter Lumber Company and currently operates eight locations and two manufacturing facilities in Virginia and North Carolina.
