Lawrenceburg, TN — Parkes Lumber Co. of Lawrenceburg, TN, has been named to LBM Journal magazine’s LBM Century Club, in recognition of the family-owned company’s 126 years of service to its community.
“We’re honoring lumber yards with a century or more of service to their communities and to our industry,” says LBM Journal Publisher and Executive Editor Rick Schumacher. “For more than 100 years, these companies have been supplying builders, homeowners and remodelers with building materials—all while providing a livelihood for generations of workers. That’s no small thing. The LBM Century Club was created to recognize and celebrate these companies for all they’ve done, and for standing the test of time.”
Since 1896, Parkes Lumber Co. has served customers without fail. LBM dealers like this have weathered economic storms with resilience and have adapted to ever-changing trends in housing, business management, environmental requirements and design trends, and have kept communities strong along the way.
Members of the LBM Century Club, which is sponsored by Epicor, will be recognized on the LBM Journal magazine’s website, LBMJournal.com. In addition, members who are in attendance will be honored at a special reception at the LBM Strategies Conference 2022.
Parkes Lumber Company will host customers and the community at an open house celebrating this achievement on Thursday, October 27 beginning at 8:00am.
