    MCDERMOTT, Ohio, April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Taylor Lumber, the world1s largest manufacturer of rift and quartered lumber
 and flooring, announces the opening of Taylor West.  Taylor West is a
 subsidiary of Taylor Lumber located in Sacramento, CA, with the main objective
 of efficiently providing high quality lumber and wood flooring to the western
 U.S. distributors.
     The Market Research Division of Business News Publishing Company conducted
 an independent survey for Taylor Lumber to determine current trends in the
 lumber and wood flooring industry.  The survey results indicated that
 product quality and availability are the two most important factors when
 selecting a manufacturer.
     "With this information in hand," states Damon Graf, Marketing and Sales
 Director for Taylor Lumber, "and knowing we offer some of the highest
 quality wood flooring in the industry, we had to increase our presence in
 the fast-growing western markets."
     "Providing quality lumber and flooring to our Western U.S. distributors,
 while maintaining product availability and competitive prices from our
 location in Ohio, was a challenge for us," explains Dave Graf, President,
 Taylor Lumber.  He adds, "By establishing Taylor West, we are located in the
 heart of the west coast market and we can maintain high availability of
 quality products while providing prices that are very competitive to our
 distributors.  Taylor West allows us, as an Eastern manufacturer, to be
 closer to the distributors so that they are able to buy smaller parcels
 instead of whole truckloads to get what they need."
     Taylor West has been operating for only a couple of months and Taylor
 Lumber is very excited about this expansion.  Damon Graf enthusiastically
 shares, "The results have exceeded even our most optimistic expectations and I
 can't imagine what growth we can expect once we aggressively market Taylor
 West throughout the region."
     Taylor West will find out soon enough.  Taylor Lumber and Taylor West will
 have a significant presence at the upcoming National Wood Flooring
 Association Conference.  This major industry event is being held
 April 26-28, 2001 in Palm Springs, CA.  Taylor Lumber and Taylor West can be
 found at booth 634.
