The company, a subsidiary of US LBM Holdings, announced its plans Tuesday to open a full-service building supply center and design showroom in November 2013. It will be located at 939 S. Route 83.
"We are excited to have this opportunity in Grayslake," said Carl Tortenson, former owner of Stan's Lumber, who will manage the store. "The facility will allow Edward Hines to fulfill the demand for an additional Lake County professional building materials dealer. We look forward to servicing customers throughout Lake County and the surrounding areas."
Edward Hines Lumber, which was founded in 1892, is headquartered in Buffalo Grove. The company has building supply centers in Alsip, Hampshire and Wheaton, a Millwork facility in Kirkland, and a window, door and cabinetry showroom in Buffalo Grove, according to a press release from Edward Hines Lumber.
"The addition of Edward Hines to the Grayslake area will help diversify and stabilize the local economy in the 'Heart of Lake County,'" Mayor Rhett Taylor said in the press release. "Edward Hines has been a landmark business throughout Chicagoland and we are proud to welcome them to historic Grayslake."
