Calls to DuBell Lumber Monday were met with a message saying, “all of our locations are closed and we’ve ceased operations.”

Founded in 1922 by William C. DuBell, his son Charles, and grandson Lester, DuBell Lumber grew from a single yard in East Camden, N.J. to seven locations including lumberyards, a truss plant, a kitchen and bath showroom and distribution center, according to the company’s website. In 1981, the original Camden site was destroyed in a fire and the company’s headquarters was moved to Medford, N.J.

The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill, N.J. reports that the company was approved for a major expansion in 2016, but the expansion never took place.  The paper reports that DuBell companies employed 157 workers according to a layoff notice posted by the state’s Department of Labor.
