Hammond Lumber Named ProSales Dealer of the Year

Hammond Lumber Company (Hammond) announced today that it has been named the 2020 ProSales Dealer of the Year. The company won the award based on its success in balancing customer service excellence and employee satisfaction, and the successful acquisition and integration of Ellsworth Building Supply (EBS) into the Hammond family.

"Our 800 employees deserve the full credit for this prestigious industry award. The acquisition was an ambitious undertaking and our employees' hard work, dedication and perseverance created a successful outcome. I'm very honored that our company has been named ProSales Dealer of the Year," said Mike Hammond, president/CEO of Hammond. "It is very humbling to me where we're at today compared to what my grandparents, Skip & Verna Hammond, started from scratch back in 1953."

ProSales praised Hammond for its successful unification of two corporate cultures and ERP business software system conversion.

EBS was a 10-location coastal Maine-based building materials retailer with 300 employees based out of Ellsworth. In March of the past year, Hammond converted the EBS locations from their former ERP business software to Hammond's Epicor BisTrack system. Hammond also continues to lead the industry with their award-winning safety program.
