Wholesale Building Products (WBP) converts customers into lifelong clients by never compromising on the quality of products and employing a team of driven professionals who simply won’t accept anything less than a seamless, smooth transaction. WBP supplies a wide variety of building materials to retailers and local exporters throughout South Florida and the Caribbean and provides customers with an ally in exporting goods.

WBP employees are more than well-versed in the subtleties of exporting goods abroad and are able to coordinate with freight companies, customs officials and clients to ensure deliveries arrive as promised. WBP’s dedicated staff takes pride in working together to support clients through every step of the process, fulfilling the company’s goal of leaping ahead of the competition in the process.

WBP spun off from G. Proulx LLC (Proulx), a South Florida-based supplier of building materials. WBP came as a natural extension of Proulx’s business as an abundance of clients looked to find a reliable exporter of building materials that would invest equally in the success of a client’s overseas opportunities. Proulx’s longevity in the marketplace provided WBP with the longstanding vendor relationships to ensure WBP could support customers across the Caribbean.

WBP represents products from leading manufacturers in every respective construction division, including brands such as Georgia Pacific, Owens Corning, National Gypsum and Tyvek, among many American-made others. WBP updates the company’s product lineup to continually incorporate new products and special requests. However, the company maintains a staple inventory of dimensional lumber, framing, drywall products, acoustical ceiling tiles, insulation, roofing, rebar, access doors, trims and bagged goods like cement and plaster. WBP also offers clients a wide variety of tools and equipment in every price point to get the job done right and on time. In addition, WBP has numerous vendors to call upon for specialized items.

Exporting Experts

Armed with 200,000 square feet of warehouse space in both Hollywood and Jacksonville, Fla., as well as a team of roughly 70 professionals, WBP is equipped to deliver its export expertise. WBP is proud to have worked to build a team of the most seasoned professionals in the industry. Like many employees at Proulx, numerous WBP employees hold previous experience in other aspects of the construction industry. What every WBP professional has in common is an unrelenting drive to see that every customer is not just satisfied, but supported throughout every stage of the order process.

To facilitate this effort, WBP arms its team with some of the most advanced software programs in the industry. These programs provide the WBP team with a consolidated order management system that tracks an order from the initial quote through to the final destination. In doing so, the WBP team rests easy knowing it will be prepared to field any unexpected events and can develop a timely solution that ensures projects don’t come to a screeching halt because of a problem in the supply chain.

Ready and Waiting

WBP operates a fleet of vehicles and long-haul drivers to fill in with transportation support between WBP’s warehouse and the most strategically located port. From there, WBP works directly with reputable freight companies to see that orders arrive at the final destination in exactly the condition as when WBP employees packed up the order.

Aside from WBP’s ability to deliver each order to shipping lines and freight forwarders using its own fleet of modern day trucks, the company also provides rack and container loading and consolidating services at its facility. With years of experience in exporting, the team at WBP also understands how to maximize the loading capacity of racks and containers to ensure each customer is able to take full advantage of shipping costs.

Clients are guaranteed that every order WBP ships will arrive exactly as promised, complete with the necessary documentation to be swiftly cleared through customs. The WBP team will continue to push itself in the next few years to uphold the supportive level of customer service that sets WBP apart from competitors. As construction activity continues to build momentum overseas, the Wholesale Building Products team will be standing by, ready to lend a helping hand and a multidisciplinary professional perspective to every project.
