With Fingerle Lumber on its way out, Mans Lumber & Millwork, Trenton, Mi., will open a 4,000-sq. ft. showroom this month in Fingerle’s hometown of Ann Arbor, Mi.
So far, Mans has hired about 10 former Fingerle employees, one as a VP, seven to work in sales in Ann Arbor and the others as drivers and yard workers in Canton, Mi.
Mans broke into the Ann Arbor market with its recent acquisition of Washtenaw Door & Trim.
After 87 years, Fingerle is in the midst of liquidating, with the final day anticipated as March 30. Most of its real estate has been sold to the University of Michigan.
