About Bateman Bros. Lumber Co.

Bateman Bros Lumber was started by Ed Bateman in 1946, operating originally as Central American Hardwoods in Philadelphia. During the 1960’s, they were selling primarily hardwoods, Philippine mahogany, cedar, pine, doug fir and redwood to retail lumber yards. In 1974 a second yard was purchased in Bucks County, PA to service North Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. In 1989, they purchased E.D. Collier & Son and moved across the river into Woodbury, NJ. During the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s the four brothers were joined by their sons Mike, Kevin, Bob, George, Howard and Dan.

Bateman Lumber is built on the premise of working for its customers, while supporting the families it employs. They procure products that fit their specific customers’ needs. This attitude continues today, along with the understanding that “our suppliers are as important to us as are our customers”. They are a wholesale distributor of lumber and other building materials.

Testimonial

“We had been using Info Plus by Smartek, however, since they no longer provided support because they went out business, we needed to replace our system. We were looking for a complete, lumber specific ERP system to manage all of our business needs. After doing some research, we chose to partner with WoodPro because of the price they offered and the recommendations by their current users.

Since the implementation of WoodPro InSight in 2015, we have been able to efficiently process orders, analyze our sales and future inventory needs. It also helps us service our customers by being able to see their usage and anticipating their needs.

WoodPro was very accommodating and took on quite a bit of the implementation process that a larger client's IT staff normally handles. And such work was handled without issue.

Being a small wholesaler, this was essential as we have limited employee resources available to dedicate exclusively to setting up a new system.

Any needs that were not met by the system as delivered have been handled/changed by the support staff. Larger and more "specific to our company" changes were made at what I consider very reasonable fees.”
