East Hartford Grand Opening

Mansfield, MA – June 7, 2019 – The National Lumber Family of Companies is pleased to announce the Grand Opening celebration for the public June 21-22 at our newest location, National Building Products in East Hartford, CT.

Everyone Welcome! There will be special sales offerings with free coffee and donuts being served. There will be kitchen designers available to answer questions as people browse through the new showroom.

The location is overseen by General Manager Mark Lefsyk, and many of the employees have worked at this location under other owners in the past. Their experience with providing building materials in the area is helping us make a smoother transition into this new location.

In addition to an array of improvements to the full-service lumberyard, with expanded products offerings in both the lumberyard and hardware store, the renovated East Hartford location also contains a Kitchen Views design showroom that also contains millwork products.

New Responsive Website

Mansfield, MA – March 7, 2019 – National Lumber is pleased to invite everyone to explore our new responsive website, which is mobile-friendly. Whether you prefer to use a desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone, the website will respond to the page size of the device used.

Navigation has been streamlined to accommodate mobile devices, and the new layout has thumbnail sections that are three across on a desktop or laptop screen. When seen on a smartphone, the thumbnail sections stack for easy scrolling down the page.

Any website is never really finished, and more depth will be added to various sections over the next few weeks. So you are invited to take a look now, and then check back in a few weeks to see what has been added.

Questions or feedback on the new design can be sent using our Contact Form.

Thank you for your interest in the National Lumber Family of Companies.
