657 EMPLOYEES, INCLUDING 55 SAPPHIRE DESIGNERS/ ESTIMATORS
With nine locations and 657 employees (including 55 MiTek SUPPLY designers/ estimators), 9,000 SKUs and turn-key construction services, and $300 million in annual revenue, MiTek software is now as indispensable to National Lumber’s estimating capability as it is in other key areas of their business.
PRECISE, HIGHLY-ACCURATE ESTIMATES
By adopting MiTek SUPPLY, top New England building materials supplier National Lumber builds a reputation for precise, highly-accurate estimates.
Many general contractors don’t have estimators anymore…. That’s why SAPPHIRE means so much to us.”
“We used to do this cavemen style,” says Manny Pina of National Lumber. “For every job, each salesman fills out an electronic job data sheet, with trusses, iJoist, millwork, whatever is required. Then, with MiTek® SUPPLY, we are able to quote the job before we do the design work.”
National Lumber was already using the MiTek SAPPHIRE Component Manufacturer Suite for structural design, wood frame optimization, and component design and manufacturing. Now they needed to bring the same level of excellence to their whole-structure estimates.
