It’s easy to buy “too cheap,” and tough to buy great quality that competes. Our guys are pros.


Buying materials in volume is a major piece of the Simonson plan. Our buyers centrally purchase materials for all locations, consolidating the demand of all our yards. We have full-time professional buyers—a luxury most independent lumber yards can’t afford.

    The Simonson Endorsement

    We care about the materials we source, which is why our vendors compete to earn the Simonson Endorsement—meaning they’ve gone above and beyond expectations for quality, service, and integrity. They work with our buyers to become a preferred vendor by enhancing the value of their programs so that our sales staff has tangible advantages. Vendors provide some or all of these benefits:

    • Volume considerations
    • Enhanced product training / product knowledge / factory tours
    • Improved service / lead times
    • Small order fill-ins
    • Marketing support
    • Automation / material handling
    • Showroom displays

    All of which are geared to improving your buying experience at Simonson.
