When any company stays in business for over 100 years, you know there’s something special going on. In the wood products industry, it’s nearly unheard of. Throw in that the company has been – and continues to be – family-owned and you’re in the company of a very few.
C&D Lumber is proud of what we’ve been able to achieve over our 100-plus years in business. Normally people credit “tradition” for success stories with such a long history. But for C&D, the trick has always been its people, its products, and most important—you.
We deliver superior quality, craftsmanship and service. From paper-wrapping our products, to providing mixed loads, and more, we go the extra mile to ensure your experience is second-to-none.
The story of C&D’s commitment to personal, customized service combined with the highest quality wood products goes back more than 100 years. Our roots reach to 1890, when Alfred Johnson built his first sawmill in Southern Oregon's Coos County. In 1943, the Johnson family built a mill near the Coos and Douglas County lines. With a nod to its geography, the operation became C&D Lumber
Company Now, the fourth generation of the family guides the company in its successful navigation of a complicated national market. In fact, C&D is the largest US manufacturer of Port Orford Cedar products. And on site, our mill's computerized state-of-the-art technology exceeds anything Alfred Johnson could have imagined. But he would still recognize the old-world craftsmanship and cutting-mill quality of the wood products we manufacture. He would also recognize the other traditions we have continued: a respect for natural resources, a love for Port Orford Cedar, and the strong work ethic that has been our tradition since the Johnson family founded the business at the turn-of-the-century.
A steady and respected employer like C&D quickly becomes an important part of any community. Add a history reaching back more than 100 years, and put it in the midst of a small town and you have the makings for a community hub. We’re proud to play a big role in the communities around Riddle, Oregon. From volunteerism to philanthropy, we’re not only willing, we’re honored to help.
