Offering the best in exotic woods since 1798.
The J. Gibson McIlvain Company has been providing customers nationwide with quality selections of exotic and domestic lumber, as well as custom millwork and mouldings, since 1798. In 1970, Gib McIlvain became the sixth generation to join the family owned business. With experience gained working in a west coast sawmill during the summers along with experience from buying domestic hardwood from places all over the world, Gib has brought a wealth of knowledge to the company. His industry related experience, as well as his active participation on several foundation boards, helped prepare him to become president of the company in 1979.
The J. Gibson McIlvain Company has always held great pride in continually offering customers quality lumber from only the finest forests in the world, as well as exceptional customer service and satisfaction. Two centuries worth of experience have passed down from generation to generation, and, with Gib’s daughter, Caroline, taking the lead now, the J. Gibson McIlvain Company is now a seventh generation family business.
