McCoy’s Building Supply Opens Lumber Distribution and Reload Operation
McCoy’s Building Supply recently purchased the former C-R Reload Center, Inc. located in Burnet, Texas.
C-R Reload had provided reload and lumber storage services for McCoy’s and other Central Texas customers since 2002. Under McCoy’s ownership the facility will operate as MC Reload with a focus on reducing costs and adding distribution efficiencies to McCoy’s Building Supply stores and their customers throughout a large part of McCoy’s network of Texas stores. The facility will also provide reload and storage services to third party users.
The purchase includes the existing seven acre rail-served facility with rail capacity for 14 center beam rail cars, as well as the acquisition of an additional 30 acres which will be developed to substantially increase the facility’s distribution and reload capacity. McCoy’s has increased its truck fleet to improve delivery efficiencies to each of their store locations served by the distribution facility.
“This new operation is an important step in our future that substantially improves McCoy’s effectiveness in serving our stores and our customers,” said Brian McCoy, President and CEO. Planning and design work to increase both the rail and storage capacity of the additional property has begun in anticipation of growth for both McCoy’s distribution and MC Reload services.
The facility is served by Austin Western Railroad with rail access to the BNSF and Union Pacific Railroads.
