FAMILY OWNED SINCE 1994
Andonis and his youngest son, Chris, share a very special bond. Since day one, they have considered each other best friends. Chris has always idolized his Dad for being able to build his own business from the ground up without ever compromising family time. From summer trips to Greece to coaching his son's travel basketball team to a Pineridge partnership; the father/son tradition remains stronger than ever.
Andonis founded Pineridge Paper & Packaging (parent company) in 1994, which operated solely as a printing paper brokerage for 25+ years. Chris graduated in April 2019 from Florida International University (FIU) with a degree in finance. He started his career on Wall Street within Citigroup's Investment Banking Division, with the eventual goal of starting his own business someday, just like his Dad.
Six months later, even surprising to himself, Chris decided to turn his entrepreneurial dreams into reality much sooner than he initially anticipated. While balancing his goal to build something new and work alongside his Dad, Chris transformed Pineridge Paper & Packaging into a fully operational lumber brokerage under the name Pineridge Lumber Products. As of 2020, this division has officially launched, partnering with various sawmills across the country, offering a variety of wood products to all types of users.
WHY WORK WITH PINERIDGE?
One thing we will NEVER be beat on is service. We address all issues just as quick as we place orders. If something isn't going as planned, we will let you know as soon as possible. We do not believe in hiding from problems... EVER. Management is also available 24 hours, 7 days per week.
All of our partnerships with suppliers and customers are friendships. This enables us to always compete when it comes to price without ever compromising on quality. We will always be fair, since we know that everyone is running a business at the end of the day.
Although we do have the capability to source other products, our main focus is on dimensional southern yellow pine (SYP) lumber. This prevents us from spreading ourselves too thin, while also allowing us to prioritize our supplier relationships efficiently.
