St. Louis, Mo.-based Huttig Building Products announced today a plan to distribute millwork and building products to dealers in Long Island, N.Y three times a week from its Newington, Conn. branch.

"Given our current coverage of northeastern United States, we felt this was the right time for us to expand our service area to include Long Island", said Greg Gurley, Huttig vice president.

The company hired Dan Vazquez, 30-year sales veteran and certified remodeler, to serve as the Long Island sales representative. In his new role, he'll connect dealers with materials by Therma-Tru, TimberTech, Masonite, and more.
