Cameron Ashley Building Products opened a new branch location in Little Rock, Ark.
“Little Rock is the fourth new location for Cameron Ashley this year, and we are excited to grow our service area to better serve our existing customers while pursuing new opportunities,” Cameron Ashley president and CEO Donny DeMarie said.
The facility will stock roofing, insulation, drywall, siding, as well as the associated accessories for fast delivery to customers’ jobsites and locations, according to the distributor.
“We are excited to expand our footprint and strengthen our partnerships in the central Arkansas region,” district manager Jason Walker said. “Our new location will give us greater service capabilities and faster delivery. Also, the large size of this facility will allow us to have a robust inventory in all core categories—ready for next day delivery in central Arkansas. Tragically, the Arkansas market, like so many markets, has been hit hard by storms and natural disasters. We will be stocking a full line of roofing and roofing accessories to help ease some of the local supply chain issues.”
Josh Jerles will serve as the Little Rock distribution center manager. Jerles said the location will put Cameron Ashley in the heart of Arkansas and will dovetail well with existing locations in Springdale, Ark., and Memphis locations to help provide quick delivery to the northern part of the state.
South Carolina-based Cameron Ashley is a wholesale distributor of roofing, insulation, gypsum, siding, and other specialty building products. The company operates a network of more than 50 distribution centers across the United States.
