In alignment with industry trends and its multi-year growth strategy, Gordon Lumber, Fremont, Oh., is consolidating two retail locations into its four surrounding contractor yards and expanding its component operations.

Its limited service yards in Bellevue and Bowling Green, Oh., have closed, with operations absorbed by full-line contractor and retail lumberyards in Fremont, Genoa, Huron and Port Clinton, Oh. The company will reallocate additional resources into the full-line yards in order to support growth, expand product and service offerings, and expand service to its core markets.

More will also be invested into its component division, following an excellent return on recent capital investments in Gordon Components, Findlay, Oh., as well as by Gordon’s Michigan joint venture partner, Gordon Components MI.

To support the new growth strategy, Derek Cowen has been promoted to vice president and general manager of Gordon Components. On the lumber side, Justin Tracy becomes VP-operations and Michael Kuntz is VP-sales of Gordon Lumber.
