LMC proudly congratulates Safrits Building Supply on receiving the PROSALES Dealer of the Year Award. The PROSALES Dealer of the Year Award honors outstanding achievements in construction supply operations, management and innovations, as well as meritorious service to the dealer’s community and to the lumber and building material industry. Only one construction supply dealer is chosen per year out of roughly 7,000 nationwide. As winner, Safrit’s is featured in the cover story in PROSALES’ January/February issue and on its website, prosalesmagazine.com.

“For nearly 38 years, owner Leonard Safrit has been molding Safrit’s Building Supply and its affiliates into one of the nation’s best-run building material dealers,” said Craig Webb, editor-in-chief of PROSALES magazine and author of the cover story. “It’s a national leader in such cutting-edge areas for dealers as centralized dispatching and activity-based pricing. It’s constantly diversifying into new products to eke the most value possible out of its modest coastal North Carolina market. And it sets an example for the thousands of smaller lumberyards and specialty product dealers nationwide that struggle every day against the big-box stores and regional building material competitors.”

Above all, PROSALES’ Dealer of the Year award honors our fellow LMC Dealer, Leonard Safrit, whose passion for both numbers and for people has galvanized Safrit’s and its fellow stores since this former sawmill went exclusively into retail sales in 1975. 

Since becoming a part of LMC in 1989, Safrits Building Supply has been a very involved LMC Dealer with Leonard Safrit bringing his astute business sense to LMC's network of independent lumberyards by serving on LMC Committees. LMC congratulates Leonard Safrit and his entire team at Safrit’s Building Supply and Jacksonville Building Supply on their PROSALES Dealer of the Year award.
