DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Cameron Ashley Building Products, Inc. (Cameron Ashley), a leading distributor of specialty building products, will open its newest distribution center at 3524 S. Canal Street in Delta Township.

Cameron Ashley serves over 5,000 customers across 42 locations throughout the United States, and brings customer-focused, innovative services and products to the Lansing region’s untapped market. Cameron Ashley currently employs nearly 550 staff companywide, and intends to hire three to five full-time employees in the first year at the Delta Township operation.

“We are expanding our service to Michigan and its surrounding markets, which will also allow us to increase service to our existing and future customers,” said Cameron Ashley Regional Vice President Tom Gaffey. “Our expansion in Delta Township is essential for providing on-ground inventory close to our customers, and the ability to support their sales through our products with sales, marketing and merchandising is a win-win situation.”

Cameron Ashley specializes in distribution of roofing, insulation, gypsum, siding and other specialty building products, and will focus on residential building products at its new Delta Township location. Additionally, Lansing Community College’s (LCC) Business & Community Institute will play a key role in workforce training support by routing employee state withholding taxes into a dedicated customizable training fund through the Michigan New Jobs Training Program.

“Our region has seen a steady flow of construction since 2019 across various industries, with over $3 billion in active construction,” said Bob Trezise, president and CEO of LEAP. “To have a leading building products distributor enter our market reaffirms our region’s growth trajectory. As usual, many partnerships were needed to assist Cameron Ashley in locating in Delta Township, from township leaders to our great partners at LCC. Thank you and congratulations to all!”

“Delta Township is pleased to welcome Cameron Ashley Building Products to the community,” said Ken Fletcher, Delta Township supervisor. “Especially in uncertain and challenging times, Cameron Ashley’s investment demonstrates the company’s strength and course. We have enjoyed working with the company from the start and look forward to building a robust relationship for years to come.”
