Cassity Jones Lumber and Building Materials is a 65-year-old family-owned building materials supplier focused on helping professional builders succeed in building and improving the communities in which they serve. Cassity Jones, the founder of the company now known as Cassity Jones, Inc., began selling lumber and building material from a leased facility in Carthage, Texas in 1950. Prior to opening that first store, he and his brother Thomas were in the home building business, the wholesale grocery business and the truck and tractor business, according to the company’s website.
Cassity Jones currently consists of six lumber and building material operations and a custom door fabrication plant. With corporate headquarters in Longview, these businesses operate throughout the Northeast Texas, Dallas, and Bossier City, Louisiana, area markets.
In 2015, Cassity Jones Inc. acquired the assets of Allen Millwork, a company whose history dates back to 1860. Allen Lumber & Millwork, as it is now known, serves the Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana market.
