The highlight of the February issue is a feature about family-owned R.P. Lumber.  Over the past 40 years, they’ve grown from a $5,000 investment in a single store without a restroom, to 65 lumberyards servicing the Midwest region. Their motto “Best Service, Best Value” has served them well in building a loyal customer base with significant growth, and retaining exceptional employees. To learn more about this entrepreneurial family, view the February issue of the LBM Journal.

No matter what aspect of business you’re in, you’ll benefit from the excellent piece by Bob Heidenreich, “Teach Customers That Price Isn’t Everything.”  He reveals his strategies to educate customers about what they’re buying.  It’s important to promote the value of both the materials and service.  Bob’s piece is a great reminder to us all that retaining customers and increasing profits has everything to do with knowledge, and communication.

Also of note in the February issue, is an in-depth look into the latest developments in Moulding & Trimboard.  With the increasing importance of high-performing products that resist moisture, the stronghold of wood on the market is shifting to new materials. PVC, polyurethane and fly-ash trim are now making their mark. This article is a great reference on how to compare and understand the cost and benefits of each.
