Espy Lumber Earns National Recognition As
Independent ProDealer of the Year
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] - NLBMDA is pleased to announce Hilton Head, South Carolina-based Espy Lumber has been named the 2022 “Independent ProDealer of the Year.”

Each year, the editors of HBSDealer and the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association select a independent lumberyard (with less than 5 locations) that exemplifies quality service and high-performance within the lumber and building material industry.

Espy Lumber was founded in the midst of the rapidly expanding Hilton Head area in 1958 and now serves its community as an "enthusiastic team of professionals that is the contractor's supplier of choice", as their company vision states. Over the course of over 60 years of business, Espy Lumber has expanded from an only-concrete operation to a full lumber and building material dealer and remains the only full line building supply on Hilton Head Island.

“I would like to thank the committee on behalf of Espy for this recognition,” said Mike Reeves, president and general manager of Espy Lumber. “Although the past few years have been challenging, our goal as a team at Espy has always been to create a professional environment that allows us to serve our customers to become their supplier of choice in our market.”

Espy Lumber will formally accept the award during the 2022 ProDealer of the Year Industry Summit, an event that will bring the industry together for education and networking March 29-April 2, 2022.

Past honorees of the “Independent ProDealer of the Year” award include Dakota County Lumber Co. (2021) and Townsend Building Supply (2020).

The Summit, hosted jointly by the NLBMDA and HBSDealer, provides an exclusive six-day educational forum designed to promote the growth of lumber & building product dealers, distributors, wholesalers, and the manufacturers who supply them.
