Mobile Lumber to Sponsor Press Box for ARCA Mobile 200
Board by board, nail by nail, the ARCA Mobile 200 is being hammered into one of the South’s premiere motorsports events with Mobile Lumber & Millwork supplying the materials. WNTM’s call of this year’s ARCA Mobile 200 will come from a newly constructed Press Box made possible by Mobile Lumber.
“The ARCA-Mobile 200 is a home grown event that we as Mobilians are extremely proud of,” said Jim Henderson, President of Mobile Lumber. “I’ve always been a race fan and we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to be a part of our biggest race of the year.”
Currently operating in 3 states, Mobile Lumber & Millwork is the market leader for construction professionals while maintaining a close relationship with local retail customers. Locally owned and operated since 1975, its success stems from being firmly rooted in the retail and wholesale building materials, millwork, truss and cabinetry business, while offering customers a blend of products and services to meet their remodeling, homebuilding and commercial construction needs.
“We are continuing to add the most prestigious names on the Gulf Coast as supporters of the ARCA-Mobile 200. Mobile Lumber is where local builders and consumers shop for building materials,” said ARCA-Mobile 200 Promoter Tommy Praytor. “Mr. Henderson and his crew are all about quality and customer service, we’re happy to have them as part of our team.”
The company has grown from a single lumberyard and hardware store (formerly Stacy’s) in 1975 to one of the largest family owned lumber and millwork companies on the Gulf Coast. The Company now encompasses 8 facilities in 3 states from Mississippi to Florida, a state-of-the-art cabinet showroom and production operation, a sister store (Grand Bay Lumber), a millwork and truss production plant, a growing fleet of delivery and operations vehicles and its own truck shop. Mobile Lumber has positioned itself favorably, even in this dreary economy, and invested in its commitment to serve this industry and the Gulf Coast for years to come. www.mobilelumber.com
