From Elkins, WV to a Multi-state Enterprise

About Tanner Lumber Company
PA & WV Lumber Yards

On May 15, 1984, Jim and Helen Tanner founded Tanner Lumber Company in Elkins, WV, as a small sole proprietorship serving local contractors. The goal then, as now, was to provide area businesses and individuals with high-quality wholesale hardwood lumber ready for pickup or delivery whenever and wherever needed. To best meet the need for lumber quantities and quality at the level our customers expect, we have expanded our facilities and infrastructure over the years. As our reputation for quality and personalized customer support spread, we are pleased to have welcomed customers from throughout all of Northeastern West Virginia, as well as Central Pennsylvania.

Continually Growing to Better Serve You

In 1988, Tanner Lumber Company expanded our business by purchasing the Herman Lumber Company, which included a lumber distribution yard located in Portage, PA. Tanner Lumber Company opened the doors of our Norton, WV lumber distribution yard in 1998. Then, in 1999, we finished construction of our Wilmore, PA lumber distribution yard. We added two kilns in Elkins, and three kilns and expanded warehousing capabilities to our Martindale, WV staging facility (located just six miles from our Norton Lumber Yard) in 2012, bringing our West Virginia dry kiln capacity to five units.

Our Customers Are Our #1 Priority

As we have grown from one small lumber yard in Elkins to a multi-state enterprise with five delivery trucks, five drying kilns, three full-service locations, and 48 employees, rest assured that our customers remain our #1 priority. Both tractor-trailers and straight trucks are available at all of our facilities to ensure our customers receive the most efficient delivery service to meet their needs.
