KEMPSVILLE MERGES RICHMOND OPERATIONS

Kempsville Building Materials opened a larger facility with 120,000-sq. ft. warehouse on 18 acres in Henrico, Va., replacing two smaller Richmond area locations.

Kempsville, with 50 employees in the Richmond market, has served professional builders there for the past 10 years. However, with the market’s continued growth and to meet their customers’ demands, Kempsville opted to consolidate the two smaller yards into the larger one in June.

Greg Harrell, VP of sales for Kempsville, said, “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 10 employees shortly to service the specialized needs of builders in this market.”

A division of the Carter Lumber, Kempsville currently operates eight locations and two manufacturing facilities in Virginia and North Carolina.
