All About Boston Cedar
Boston Cedar’s exclusive commitment to the independent retail lumber and building materials dealer in the Northeastern United States is what separates it from its competition. Based in Mansfield, Massachusetts, the company has established its name in the industry by focusing on the needs of both professional builders and remodelers and delivering top quality products combined with innovative marketing solutions and educational programs at the retail level.
Since its inception in early 1985, Mansfield, MA based Boston Cedar has built on a traditional wood products distribution base by offering independent lumber and building materials dealers high-end niche coastal western red cedar products such as Cowichan Gold, True Gold, Prestige Premium STK Decking and Bevel in a Box siding. Today, the company continues to expand upon on its excellent reputation of offering category leaders through the addition of best-in-class products such as RDI Railing Systems, the complete Typar Weather Protection System, KOMA Building Products, Royal Building Products as well as Trex Decking and Railing.
Company Cornerstones: Regional Expertise, Stability and Honesty
The level of success that Boston Cedar has experienced over the past years through its insight into new products and marketing expertise was by no means assured when the company was launched. A key differentiator that Boston Cedar maintains over large nationwide conglomerates is that it is independently owned and operated on a daily basis by the same individuals that formed the company in 1985. The Company prides itself on a diverse base of stable professional employees that grew up in the business, in the Northeast and collectively bring hundreds of years of regional knowledge and expertise to its broad base of independent retail LBM customers.
