Boston Cedar recently opened a new office and distribution facility in the 850-acre Cabot Business Park in Mansfield, Ma., and will soon add an education center to the site.

“We feel as though we have created and staffed a facility that will expertly serve Boston Cedar’s customer base for the next 25 years and beyond,” says president Joe Cusack. “Situated here, we are exceptionally efficient and we have instituted a more disciplined inventory picking system that includes a new rack-and-storage system. Moreover, we have the ability to efficiently run our electronic truck routing software from this single campus in Mansfield.”

The move comes after more than 26 years of successful operations and growth at Boston Cedar’s original location in Holbrook, Ma.

“The list of benefits of this new facility just grows with each day,” states Jim Mulligan, manager of operations. “One simple example would be the fact that suppliers have easier access to us and we can house and protect more inventory than we could in our original location.”

The company distributes a wide selection of lumber and building products, including the full Azek Building Products line, Abaco decking, Latitudes decking, RDI railing, a wide range of coastal western red cedar products, and the complete Typar Weather Protection System from Fiberweb-which recently honored Boston Cedar as Distributor of the Year for the second consecutive year.

The company also distributes a wide range of green products, including FSC-certified western red cedar, TiO2 trim boards, and NAHB “Green Approved” Typar and Azek Trim, Moulding, Porch, and Deck.

Looking ahead, Boston Cedar will soon begin construction of a new education center that will be directly integrated into the company’s sales center. “We will be able to host product introduction and training events right here in our own facility, which will occupy several thousand square feet of office space when complete,” says Paul Colliton, v.p. of sales and marketing.

“The Boston Cedar complex is just a remarkable facility,” adds marketing manager Scott Babbitt. “If your plans take you to the Foxboro-Mansfield area, we encourage you to schedule a tour and see what we are creating at our new home.”
