We’re looking for people who don’t shy away from hard work and who are dedicated to what they do. There’s no better time than now to join this industry and there’s no better company than Kempsville Building Materials (a division of Carter Lumber)! 

Our Story 

Carter Lumber was founded in 1932 by W.E. Carter. For 90 years, we have strengthened our company by staying true to our values, which include honesty, hard work, and putting people first. What started as a single lumberyard in Akron, Ohio, is represented today by seven brands servicing professional builders and homeowners across thirteen states with more than 160 locations. Despite our growth, we are still a family-owned company. Our core values and our people-first culture remain the same.
