Wilson Lumber has been selected as a Top 100 ProSales Dealer for 2020 by the leading building industry publication ProSales Magazine. Wilson Lumber is the only lumber company and buildings materials supplier in North Alabama to make the nationwide list and one of only two dealers in the state.
The ProSales 100 consists of the nation’s 100-largest pro-oriented building material distributors. Rankings are based on the dollar volume of sales to professional contractors.
“It’s never about the numbers, it’s all about the people,” said Wilson Lumber President Robb Wilson. “But it is nice to see the results of healthy growth so many years in a row.”
While the booming housing market in North Alabama is a big factor in Wilson Lumber’s success, it’s the decades-long commitment to taking care of customers that makes Wilson Lumber the No. 1 choice of North Alabama builders. The company has dedicated much energy to planning and managing healthy growth. It has also expanded into new business opportunities like commercial trusses and millwork and have made great gains there.
Wilson Lumber ranks 73 on the list, showing considerable growth in all facets of the company in the past year. The company added a third location – a truss manufacturing plant in Westmoreland, Tenn. – and 81 new employees throughout the year across all locations. The company reports a 10.8% growth in total sales over 2018, up from $58.6 million to $64.9 million in 2019. Of that, 99%, or $64.25 million, is attributed as sales to building professionals.
This is not the first year Wilson Lumber has made the prestigious Top 100 list, but it continues to outperform itself year over year. In 2018 Wilson Lumber was chosen as ProSales Dealer of the Year, the organization’s highest honor.
