Class code 8232 is used for employees that work for a lumberyard that sells new building materials only, including driver, yard, and warehouse positions. These locations will engage in storing, selling, and handling a variety of building materials, such as lumber, gravel, finished millwork, masons’ supplies, crushed stone, tile, sand, cinders, builders’ hardware, roofing materials, plumbing and electrical supplies, etc. No manufacturing is allowed within the scope of this classification, and all products will be received from others in bulk and then sold to customers in smaller quantities. In addition, the mixing and bagging of concrete mixes would also be included within class code 8232. Trucks that operate to supply concrete to construction sites may also be included as long as they meet the requirements in the Basic Manual.

While this is a NOC classification and will include a variety of workers, operations that are similar but that require a different classification include coal merchants, building material yards, hay, grain, or feed dealers, sawmills, grain elevator operators, trucking companies, those who sell used lumber or salvaged building materials, as well as sash, door, or assembled millwork dealers.
