Over Half a Century in the Business
Davis Lumber Company began in an old garage on East Street not far from the current location where it has been over the past fifty years. Started in 1946 by the late Franklin Davis and his wife Francine, the company has experienced continued growth and success. Beginning with no inventory, the Davises would take orders by day from a “Cameron Company” catalogue and buy lumber from a local mill, Junkin Lumber Co. They would then deliver the material in the afternoon and at night.
When Franklin Davis passed away in 1972, long-time family friend and employee Rodney Ellis took over as General Manager. Mr. Ellis skillfully guided the company until his retirement in 1994. Today the company is managed by Michael and Mark Davis, sons of the founder. With a successful past and bright future, Davis Lumber is poised to continue growing, thanks to many great employees and customers!
