EIGHTY FOUR, Pennsylvania , December 12, 2023 (press release) –

Lugoff, South Carolina truss plant

84 Lumber, the nation’s largest privately held building materials supplier, is proud to announce the opening of its first truss plant in the state of South Carolina, just outside of Columbia. The plant is tentatively set to open in January 2024.

The new truss plant, located at 185 West Jones Lane, Lugoff, South Carolina, will provide trusses and wall panels, ultimately allowing more materials and services for customers. The facility will also be equipped with brand-new, state-of-the-art equipment for operation. Once open and operating, the 78,624-square-foot facility will employ roughly 90 associates when fully staffed.

“We are very excited to open our first truss plant in the state of South Carolina,” said Ken Kucera, vice president of installed sales and manufacturing at 84 Lumber. “This is a prime location for us, being in the center of the state, as it enables us to supply to multiple locations in the Carolinas and parts of Georgia. We are confident we will see great success upon the opening of this plant.”

The company has been supplying local builders and contractors in the area with building materials since 1991. In 2007, the yard was relocated to the current Lexington location on East Main Street. In 2022, the store’s door production team was relocated to a standalone facility in Columbia, allowing the team to exclusively focus on door sales and production. In the decades since the original opening, the market and store have grown to become one of the most promising opportunities for 84 Lumber and its customers.
