Lumberyard has new ownership

The first big load of lumber and block was delivered to Pinal Lumber in December — a welcome sign of things to come from the recent sale of Pinal Lumber to Brian Kay and Dustin Bayers of Kay Supply. 

Pinal Lumber struggled in recent years to keep inventory stocked in the face of supply chain and pandemic woes. So the owners welcomed the sale to Kay Supply, which has facilities in Show Low and Thatcher. Although the Globe location will operate independently of Kay Supply, under the name 1st Choice Lumber, staff will be able to draw on the experience and resources of the parent company. 

“I don’t know when was the last time we were able to order block,” says Tanya Weaver, a Pinal Lumber employee who is happy to see the yard filling up again with product. She will be staying on with the company, along with the other employees of Pinal Lumber. 

Those employees, as well as Pinal Lumber’s strong relationships within the community, were two of the selling points, says Bayers. 

“We weren’t really looking at the time,” Bayers added. But when he was approached by Weaver and Brad Henry, the Orgill representative for Pinal, he and Brian Kay were intrigued enough to make a trip to Globe. 

Bayers said it was the community that sold them, ultimately.

1st Choice Lumber is now stocking lumber, block, rebar, insulation, and concrete and is open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. They can be reached at (928) 425-5716.
