With a 100 year heritage servicing independent contractors and major construction companies throughout the greater Philadelphia region, Woodland Building Supply Company is now in the forefront of the fast changing technology of the housing and commercial development industry.
In addition to maintaining inventories of key products and accessories that builders demand immediately, Woodland has become one of the leading companies in construction material logistics, on-site delivery, specialty products and LEEDS certification resources.
The company has flourished in the face of big-box building supply competition by developing long-term relationships with major clients, some of whom started out as small contractors and grew with the support and expertise of the hands-on management at Woodland.
Today CEO Larry Reese, great grandson of company founder Lazarus Reese — a Russian immigrant carpenter who started the business going door-to-door repairing people’s wooden stairs — emphasizes the importance of direct involvement with the builders and contractors they service.
“No matter how big our volume gets in this kind of strong building environment, in our business it’s most important to understand each client. Because for them the project they are working on is the most important, highest priority job there is. At Woodland Building Supply Company we try every day to support all of our clients with the same sense of urgency and priority.”
