Building material and construction company BMC today announced the acquisition of new property in Denver today. The move will provide a significant expansion of BMC's lumber and building supply distribution capabilities.

"This property substantially expands our capacity for lumber and building materials in one facility that is strategically located," said CEO Peter Alexander. "The size and location of the lumberyard was a critical factor in our decision as it is very scalable and we can easily meet the demand for our customers on time and on budget."

The 10-acre property, located in the Northwestern part of the city, will provide a hub for distribution throughout Colorado and is served by the Rio Grande Rail. It will be the company's eighth location in the state with the other seven being located in Boulder, Colorado Springs, Englewood, Greeley, Pueblo, Dove Valley, and Fort Lupton. The lumber and distribution Center will be overseen by Doug Whiting, market manager for Colorado.

The expansion is in line with Alexander's plans to grow the company's operations and markets reach. In an August 2010 interview with ProSales, Alexander, who became CEO shortly before the interview, said he would push BMC, then known as BMC Select, into new Western markets as well as expand it's activity within their current markets. The Boise, Idaho-based company serves mostly the Western United States, with the exception of a small operation in North Carolina, and was No. 8 in the last ProSales 100 with almost 95 percent of sales coming from professional builders.

BMC provides a wide array of building materials, including trusses and components, doors, millwork, and targeted construction and installation services. The company is designed with a centralized internal structure and dedicated teams with a broad spectrum of experience within the supply chain. It covers markets with multiple locations throughout the western portion of the country, ultimately delivering value and saving the customer cost.
