National Lumber Co., Mansfield, Ma., opened a new location Jan. 21 in East Hartford, Ct.

It will operate under the name National Building Products, since another company already does business in Connecticut as National Lumber.

The facility, vacated late last year by Builders FirstSource and since remodeled, is overseen by former BFS general manager Mark Lefsyk. It features a Kitchen Views design showroom staffed by designer John Ferrato.

National expanded into the state in 2015 with the purchase of Oxford Paint & Hardware, Oxford, Ct., which is operates as Oxford Lumber & Building Materials.
