A Wisconsin lumberyard is celebrating 90 years in business. Tomah Lumber in Tomah, Wisc. was founded in 1929, and is now owned by Eric Hall and Travis Boettcher.
In addition to serving as the community’s lumbeyard for nine decades, Tomah lumber also offers design services, light commercial building, residential building, remodeling, additions, decks, window replacements and custom cutting, the Tomah Journal reports.
The lumberyard will celebrate its 90th anniversary as a part of its annual customer appreciation event on Friday, Oct. 4.
Co-owner Travis Boettcher told the Tomah Journal that it’s gratifying to watch the business turn 90.
“It’s quite an accomplishment,” he said.
“Not every business can stand the length of time that Tomah Lumber has,” Office Manager Office manager Jodi Villacrez told the Journal. “A lot of it we attribute to loyal customers and our dedication to them. We pride ourselves on quality products and service, and I think together with the dedicated customers, that makes for longevity.”
The business was originally owned and operated by G.K. Mork, and it was named as Tomah Lumber & Fuel Co. The company sold coal alongside lumber.
