Washington, D.C.– January 12, 2016 – Hanley Wood’s ProSales magazine revealed today that Franklin Building Supply, based in Boise, ID, has been selected as the PROSALES Dealer of the Year for 2016.

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 7,500 nationwide. As the winner, Franklin Building Supply is featured in the cover story in the ProSales’ January/February issue and on its website, prosalesmagazine.com.

 “Franklin arguably does more things well over a more diverse territory than just about any other building material supplier in the country,” PROSALES editor-in-chief Craig Webb said. “This 16-unit, $111 million company operates in both a fast-growing urban area and in small towns. It has yards serving wealthy ski resorts and low-wage agricultural communities, plus one branch in a Nevada town that thrives or starves based on the price of gold mined there.”

Franklin also runs standalone showrooms, several truss plants, six door shops, a wholesaler of roofing and sheetrock, a millwork shop, a custom cabinetry firm, a granite fabricator, and units that install goods as varied as insulation, cabinets, floor coverings, doors, and wood stoves.  

Franklin has won national awards for its TV ads and for showroom design. It’s an industry leader in consumer surveys and lean manufacturing. Franklin’s 40-year history of community service shows through in programs such as “High School Hero,” in which the company honors four students per year for promoting school spirit, serving the community, helping others, and being positive role models.
