Concord, N.C. —The Weyerhaeuser Distribution Center in Concord, N.C. marked 20 years of operation with an event on Tuesday. A ribbon-cutting ceremony for new office spaces, led by Concord Mayor J. Scott Padgett and community leaders was followed by a customer and associate event.
“This celebration allows our invited customers throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia to tour our impressive facility while getting to meet our associates and vendors,” said Jan Marrs, general manager of the Weyerhaeuser Distribution Center in Concord. “This appreciation event marks two decades of Weyerhaeuser’s continuous service to the needs of building industry dealers throughout a widespread area in three states.”
The Weyerhaeuser facility has more than 25,000 products available to its customers in the key building product areas of boards and patterns, cedar, decking/railing, insulation, engineered lumber, metal, panels and siding/trim.
“Our facility sells more than 20 million board feet per year,” said Marrs. “To construct an average home a builder needs 2,000 board feet. That means with all the lumber we sell each year, we could construct 10,000 homes!”
The Concord facility, which was opened in 1996, currently employs 45 associates. The associates inventory products received from vendors across the country. They then coordinate and ship out needed materials to more than 500 customers.
