In 1932, my grandfather, W.E. Carter, along with T. Neil Jones, founded the Carter Jones Lumber Company in Akron, Ohio.
During our company’s growth, Carter Lumber maintains hometown values by continuing to operate on the founding principles set down by W.E. Carter: There is nothing more important than hard work, dedication and customer service. Today Carter Lumber remains committed to this philosophy.
Carter Lumber is one of the nation’s top building materials retailers with 146 locations in 12 states. More than just a lumberyard, the Carter Lumber family of companies is dedicated to providing builders and do-it-yourselfers with a broad range of quality building materials and exceptional customer service.
We’re more than just a lumberyard. We’re The Yard in your own back yard. And we look forward to serving you, our family of customers, for years to come.
