84 Lumber is opening a new truss facility late this month in Cartersville, Ga. Located on an 18-acre plot, it will service the Atlanta market.

The truss plant will also work in tandem with the existing plant in Oxford, Ga., bringing component manufacturing capabilities to more customers.

ˇ°With thousands in annual housing starts in the past decade alone, Atlanta is one of the fastest-growing markets, which is why we decided to expand our footprint here,ˇ± said 84 Lumber VP of installed sales & manufacturing Ken Kucera. ˇ°84 Lumber has made it a priority to invest time and resources in this growing market.ˇ±

The company has been servicing the Atlanta market since the early 1970s and greatly expanded its footprint during the 2000s housing boom. 84 Lumber later opened an additional lumberyard, as well as a dedicated window shop to keep up with market demand.
