When Kevin Case first started Case Engineered Lumber Inc. (#113), he resisted the temptation to buy brand-new vehicles, opting instead for a used delivery truck to handle his loads of lumber.The truck experienced engine trouble early on, and after three unsuccessful weeks with a mechanic, it burst into flames upon ignition.Unfazed, Case junked the toasted truck and replaced it, this time with two used trucks -- figuring he'd at least have a backup."It took me a while to learn that unless you know what you're looking for in used equipment, you're probably buying someone else's problem," he says.Now when Case opens additional locations, he splurges on all-new trucks. --Rebecca Dorr.......................................................

Kevin Case has built his business from the floor up.Now, his engineered lumber business is shooting through the roof.
Specializing in home floor systems, Case Engineered Lumber in Sugar Hill recently was named by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies.
The days of Case's taking out a second mortgage and emptying his personal savings account to pay his staff and vendors appear to be long gone.
The company, which Case started in 1996 with $150,000, netted sales of more than $9 million last year and reported growth of more than 2,000 percent in those five years.
...
Case, the founder and CEO, said the magazine's ranking --- 113th on a list of 500 --- is validation of the company's work and commitment and establishes it as a leader in the building of home floor systems.He said the company enjoys a favorable relationship with prominent builders D.R. Horton and Bowen Builders Group and has worked in dozens of area developments in Gwinnett, north Fulton and Forsyth counties.
"It is a tremendous honor for our company and our employees to be recognized by a national publication such as Inc. magazine," Case said."For a small company that was started from scratch with limited resources, to have the success that we have had is very gratifying."
The use of engineered lumber, a growing trend in homebuilding, requires younger, smaller trees that result in stronger, more efficient wood.The engineered wood also will not shrink, warp or twist --- the common causes of squeaking floors.
...
Case estimated that engineered lumber is used in one of every three homes built today.He believes his company has an advantage over other lumberyards because Case Lumber deals only in engineered lumber.
"When you focus your effort on one thing, most likely you will be better than most at that one thing," Case said."If not, you don't have a reason to exist.By specializing in only one part of the package, we are able to provide a better and more complete service, as well as be more efficient with designs, maintain better inventory turns and have less waste.All these factors come together so that in the end we help the builder reduce his costs and build a better house."
Case Engineered Lumber, which also designs roof systems, to a far lesser extent, has become a major force in the Southeast market, having opened lumberyards in Birmingham, Nashville and Raleigh.Further expansion is planned next year, Case said.
...
A 21-year veteran of the lumber business, Case has held management positions with Boise-Cascade and Trus Joist, the world's largest manufacturer of engineered lumber products.
This is the 20th year that Inc. magazine has compiled its top 500 list of the nation's leading entrepreneurial firms based on sales growth during the previous five years.Microsoft, Timberland, Domino's Pizza, Oracle, Patagonia and the Sharper Image have graced previous lists.
