Forest Products Supply, St. Louis, Mo., opened a seventh distribution center in Omaha, Ne., Feb. 1.

The new DC will service most of Nebraska and western Iowa and has distribution rights to key specialty products such as Trus Joist engineered wood, James Hardie siding, and Interfor boards. Like all FPS facilities, the new branch will carry a broad line of commodity lumber and panels as well as other specialty products.

This expansion is a direct result of the success the FPS Kansas City branch has had over the last few years servicing key customers in Nebraska and Iowa. With a facility in Omaha and an expanded product base, FPS intends to substantially increase sales in both states.
