Our National Buying Power philosophy helps us negotiate deals that could not be obtained by a single yard owner.


Combining the buying resources of our members whose collective sales exceed $5.2 billion dollars, PAL establishes National Buying Power by sourcing its lumber and building material products from across the globe. Obtaining the best price possible for each member is our goal. And with low overhead, PAL continues to be the best value buying group in the industry.

PAL's shareholders have benefited from our consistent support and market expertise.  Today we enjoy more than 220 independent lumber dealers who are proud owners of their co-op. At PAL, we listen, we're dependable and we care about you and your business.
