History

Lumbermen’s, Inc. was founded in 1955 with the commitment to be a convenient, cost-effective resource for lumber dealers, specialty dealers, and industrial manufacturers. Our primary focus has been to market industry leading “brand name” products to our customers and assist them in bringing those products to the marketplace.

From our first location in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Lumbermen’s has grown into a network of 10 strategically located warehouses that service our customers’ needs with a wide variety of building products for the residential, commercial, industrial/OEM, kitchen and bath, and entry door marketplaces.

Our reputation as an industry leader for over 60 years has allowed us to attract and represent many of the leading building material manufacturers’ products. We support these products with knowledgeable inside and outside salespeople assisted by product specialists who work to create demand in the marketplace for our products. Localized inventories, supported by our extensive delivery system ensures multiple delivery days per week to our customers and means products are available to our customers with very short lead times.

At the heart of any successful company are excellent employees. Our people are professionals, experienced and fully trained. Every employee at Lumbermen’s is committed to serving our customers in the best way possible, especially since 1998, when Lumbermen’s became a 100% employee owned company. Each employee realizes that satisfied customers are the key to Lumbermen’s success in the future.

We challenge you to experience Lumbermen’s service and the industry leading products we represent. We are eager to assist you in whatever way possible to ensure that your experience is a positive one.
