Weyerhaeuser Company is expanding its wholesale distribution footprint with the addition of its 19th distribution center in San Antonio, Texas.

“This growth is exciting for our customers and the product brands we take to market,” Ross Theilen, vice president of distribution for Weyerhaeuser, said in a news release. “Texas has one of the strongest and fastest-growing housing markets in the country.”

The facility in San Antonio will include 99,000 square feet of covered product storage and five acres of uncovered product storage to support Weyerhaeuser’s full-line product portfolio, according to the company. The company will start up the permanent site early in 2023, but will also be operating locally at a temporary site in the second quarter of 2022.

“Our new facility in San Antonio will help us better serve customers in central and southwest Texas—while also allowing our distribution centers in Houston, which currently supports the San Antonio market, to expand and enhance service farther east through Louisiana,” Theilen said.

Weyerhaeuser said the facility will stock its full product offering, including proprietary Weyerhaeuser and Trus Joist brands, specialty building products, and commodity lumber, panels, and steel.

Seattle, Wash.-based Weyerhaesuer owns or controls approximately 11 million acres of timberlands in the United States and manages additional timberlands under long-term licenses in Canada.
