When Lumbermen’s expanded into delivery services, “Pick-up” was dropped from the name. Adding to its full line of building materials, Lumbermen’s began carrying laminate in the late 1970s which quickly led to other products such as cabinets and hardware, making us a full-line distributor to the kitchen and bath industry.
Today Lumbermen’s fabricates and installs countertops on behalf of our customers for single family, multi-family and commercial projects ranging from laminate to solid surface and stone products such as quartz and granite.
Lumbermen’s brings in over 600 rail cars of board products annually to be distributed to our industrial and commercial customers or used by us to manufacture components for our customers, enabling them to expand their capabilities and capacity.
We also assemble entry doors using components from partners such as Therma-Tru, GM Wood Products, and Simpson Wood Doors. As an additional value-added option, our doors can feature factory paint and stain finishes.
In 1990, Lumbermen’s established the Employee Stock Ownership Program, giving employees a personal investment in the business, and by 1998 the company was 100% employee-owned. Today, there are 425 employee-owners.
From humble beginnings, Lumbermen’s has grown from a pick-up building materials supplier to a leading distributor and manufacturer offering diverse products and value-added services that stand out in multiple industries. We were founded on Christian Faith that informs our thinking yet today. We are committed to investing in rewarding relationships and believe that Lumbermen’s has been blessed in order that we may be a blessing to others.
