At an awards banquet held last month in Farmington, Pa., officials for 84 Lumber recognized the company’s 2018 Rookie and Manager of the Year winners. The two awards are the most notable of the ceremony, officials said, honoring 84 Lumber’s top performers from the previous year. The company also honored Area Manager of the Year, Buyer of the Year, Hauler of the Year and more, including various merit awards best sales performance and improvement.

Nick Luchonok, a co-manager from Oakland, N.J., was named Rookie of the Year in only the third consecutive year the award has been presented. He started at the company in January 2018 as a manager trainee in Lords Valley, Pa., before being promoted to co-manager in Oakland, N.J., last August.

The Manager of the Year award went to Chuck Frerichs, who has managed the 84 Lumber in Chandler, Ariz., since it opened in 2005. Under his leadership, the store reached nearly $80 million in sales in 2018—a $20 million increase from the prior year.

“2018 was a stellar year for 84,” said Maggie Hardy, president of 84 Lumber. “We achieved the second-highest annual revenue in our history and continued to find ways to grow and excel in our industry. I couldn’t be prouder of those we recognized at our awards ceremony, as well as all of our associates who work hard every day. I’m truly grateful for the unique team that we have.”
