A Division of the Carter Lumber Company

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
