BW Pro, spun off from Builderz Warehouse three years ago to serve multifamily developers of more than 100 units, broke ground in July on a 40,000-square-foot facility at 3156 E. Roeser Road in Phoenix. With its focus more on new construction than remodels, managing partner Ron Wittenberg says BW Pro is deemed an essential business, and has not laid off any workers as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. “The new construction market is good. A lot of investors are putting money in for the long term,” he says.
BW Pro deals only with multifamily, and Wittenberg notes there has been a temporary slow-down in renovations. He finds owners, afraid their tenants will not be receiving money due to being impacted by COVID -19, are less likely to pour money into the renovation side and are just going to hold vacant units.
COVID-19 has not caused any shortages in BW Pro’s supply chain, according to Wittenberg, who says, “Our factories are dispersed; we do not put all of our eggs in one basket. We also buy in large quantities and store it in our warehouses to weather supply chain disruptions.”
