PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh-based BLD Marketing on Thursday said it has created and launched a recruitment marketing program for 84 Lumber Co.

The nation’s largest privately held building materials supplier, 84 Lumber operates about 250 stores, plants, custom millwork and door shops and engineered wood product centers in more than 30 states. It is hiring for various positions due to increased residential construction and, as of Thursday, listed 478 open positions from labor to management on its website.

The Business Times recently reported that 84 Lumber said it topped $4 billion in annual sales for the first time in its history with projections to reach more than $4.5 billion by year-end. Expansion is underway into Detroit; Stockton, California; and Boise, Idaho, with new stores scheduled to open in early 2021.
