Landmark Lumber Group debuts

NEW FREEDOM, Pa. – Landmark Lumber Group will debut at Wood Pro Expo Lancaster fresh off the heels of the strategic merger between Mann & Parker Lumber, a hardwood lumber supplier, and Specialty Lumber, a softwood lumber supplier. 

The newly formed company touts itself as “the most comprehensive lumber wholesale supplier in the Mid-Atlantic” further noting that it has the largest lumber product line from a single supplier.  

Landmark Lumber Group operates out of a 27-acre facility in New Freedom, Pa. The campus houses corporate offices, five warehouses, seven dry kilns, a full-service moulding and millwork facility, and the company’s truck fleet servicing the entire Mid-Atlantic region.

Because of the distinct grading and sizing systems of wood, Landmark Lumber Group will operate two divisions: Landmark Lumber Hardwood and Landmark Lumber Softwood. The company said this structure is strictly quality-control based, ensuring that each wood type is processed and handled to its specific quality standards. Landmark Lumber consultants represent products for both divisions.

“This merger increases the value we can deliver to our customers,” said Troy Albright, owner of Landmark Lumber Group. “It is an opportunity for us to offer them more products and better service. By merging operations, we now offer hardwoods, softwoods, thermally modified lumber. and stair parts from a single supplier along with free weekly delivery.”

Landmark Lumber Group’s plans for Wood Pro Expo
Landmark Lumber Group plans to showcase the following products at Wood Pro Expo Lancaster, Oct. 12-13 at Spooky Nook Sports in Manheim, Pa.

Landmark Lumber Group thermally modified lumber

Thermally modified lumber is a kiln drying process that creates an exterior construction material that is more resistant to weather and insects. It is chemical free, environmentally safe, renewable, and provides improved performance over pressure treated wood making it ideal for siding, decks, wood patios, fences, and rail systems. Landmark Lumber will display thermally modified pine decking materials and thermally modified ash, hickory and poplar hardwoods at the show.
