  • Our Newest Location in the Metro Richmond Market

    We are proud to announce the opening of our newest Kempsville Building Materials location in the Metro Richmond market! The new location will assist us in our continued efforts to be the number one supplier and employer of choice in all our markets. The new full-service location, just south of Route 10 in Richmond, will allow us the ability to service the growth in the Greater Metro Richmond market. Kempsville Building Materials will begin operations in the new facility in Spring 2016.

    “The Richmond market continues to show signs of strong growth, and the new location, coupled with the existing Ashland location, will position us to take advantage of the projected market growth,” said VP of Sales Greg Harrell. He continued, “We fully intend on using all of our products and services to offer exceptional value and service to the commercial and residential building community in the Greater Richmond area.”

    Once operational, the new facility will be the eighth Kempsville Building Materials location, and service the major areas of the Outer Banks, Hampton Roads, and Greater Richmond.

    We’re excited to open this new location and fully serve the Richmond area.

  • Griggs Lumber is now Kempsville Building Materials

    In continuing with our re-alignment of field operations, we would like to announce a joining of forces within The Carter Lumber Family of Companies. Effective immediately, we have combined the teams from Kempsville Building Materials and Griggs Lumber. This joining of forces will create the area’s strongest lumberyard.

    This “new’ team will now service the combined market with seven(7) locations from Ashland VA to Buxton NC under the Kempsville Building Materials name and will work out of the three former Griggs Lumber facilities in Point Harbor, Elizabeth City and Buxton, North Carolina as well as the existing Kempsville Building Materials locations in Ashland, Chesapeake, Newport News and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

    The new team will continue to be led by Scott Gandy, President, Pat Norton, VP Operations and Greg Harrell VP Sales.

    By making this change, we firmly believe that the Carter Lumber Family of Companies has strengthened our ability to service the these markets.

    Throughout this process, our goal is to ensure a seamless transition for our customers and employees and vendors.

    Best wishes,

    Jeff Donley
    President and Chief Operating Officer
