A Competitive Advantage
Welcome to LBM Advantage. We are one of the country’s largest and most experienced, wholly member-owned buying cooperative for the lumber and building materials industry, giving our members a huge buying advantage in their marketplaces. Our members benefit not only from our multi-billion dollar purchasing power, but also from our experienced, regional staff of industry experts. The entire organization operates on our core principles of service to our members, transparency and flexibility.
“To create a competitive advantage for our members by leveraging their collective power.”
The Reason Behind Our Mission
“We have to pool our buying power, we have to be competitive, and we have to do it for our future generations, for our children.” Fifty-year industry veteran and former President of GNH Lumber, Stanley Randall Ingalls, was lucky enough to be in the room when our forefathers formed ENAP in 1967. Listen to Stan speak about this powerful moment in the history of our cooperative.
Thank you to our Platinum Sponsors
The goal of the Building Products Department is to become our members’ first option for all building materials (Commodities, Specialties, Millwork and Kitchen & Bath).
The Forest Products Division is an extension of each member’s procurement arm, focused on taking advantage of economies of scale, to quickly and efficiently procure forest products at the best value for our membership. We utilize a network of strategic sources, with a primary focus on dealing directly with forest products mills/manufacturers. We provide our members with continual market intelligence and aid them in buying decisions.
