Two local building-supply wholesalers will move in late February to new, larger quarters east of Joplin
Four States Supply Inc., of Joplin, and Trees Unlimited, of Carthage, will share space in the location on East 32nd Street about one-half mile east of Joplin.
Crews are finishing construction of a 6,000-square-foot warehouse to serve the two companies.
Trees Unlimited sells dimensional lumber products to lumber retailers. Four States Supply sells all other types of building materials.
The move will consolidate operations of the two long-time local companies. Trees Unlimited is owned by Richard Campbell, and Four States Supply is owned by Campbell, Gary Cole and Doug Huntley.
The two companies employ 45 workers.[[In-content Ad]]
