84 Lumber has purchased certain assets of West Coast Lumber as part of its expansion plans into California, as West Coast Lumber exits the production yard business. The acquired West Coast Lumber assets and team will be integrated into 84 Lumber’s Bakersfield location and its new Riverside location in California, under the leadership of 84 Lumber divisional president Jorge Espinoza.

“We are thrilled to announce the deal with West Coast Lumber and extend our gratitude to Joe Lawrence for his collaboration in ensuring a smooth transition,” Espinoza said. “This move represents a significant milestone in our growth strategy and demonstrates our commitment to better serving our customers in the Golden State. We look forward to creating on of the largest yards in all of 84 Lumber.”

“Our team is thrilled to be joining 84 Lumber, a company known for treating its employees second to none,” Lawrence said. “Together we seek to build a powerhouse in southern California with best-in-class people, product, and service.”

84 Lumber outlined its growth plans in California, planning to grow to eight locations with two additional facilities currently in the permitting process for La Miranda and Lancaster. The new locations in the state include a production yard and truss plant in Bakersfield, stores in Stockton and La Miranda, production yards in Lancaster and Riverside, and a truss plant expansion in Yuma, Ariz., to service Arizona and southern California.

Eighty Four, Pa.-based 84 Lumber operates 310 facilities, which include 234 stores, 14 component manufacturing plants, 28 engineered wood product centers, and 34 door shops, in 33 states.
