Building Materials Holding Corporation on Monday announced it will shutter additional facilities in the western U.S.
BMHC said it will close all of its operations located in Northern Nevada, including Reno and Sparks facilities. In Sherwood, Oregon the company will consolidate its greater Portland market operations to its Vancouver, Washington facility, closing the Sherwood site. In Marysville, California BMHC will consolidate its lumber and building materials distribution and wall panel manufacturing operations into its existing Modesto, California facilities.
Other operational consolidations will occur in Texas, Colorado and Arizona. The company expects the closings and consolidations to be substantially completed during the first quarter of 2009. Approximately 260 employees in total are expected to be affected.
"The unprecedented national economic and local market challenges require that we continue to realign costs with current market conditions," said Robert E. Mellor, Chairman and CEO. "With the exception of the Reno area, where we will be exiting the market, we will continue to serve our customers with our full range of products and services--including framing, lumber, millwork and trusses--through nearby facilities.
The company announced in December that it would move its San Francisco headquarters to Boise in addition to cutbacks announced earlier in the year.
