Family First

Carter Lumber is one of the biggest and best building materials suppliers in the United States, but we are a family company first. Since our beginnings, we’ve persevered with determination and integrity, all with a family-oriented mindset of working together and having fun while we do it.

Working Together

Nothing is accomplished in the building materials industry if we don’t have a strong work ethic and respect for our peers to keep doing the best we can every day. We believe that taking care of each other and knowing that it takes everyone to do their job to the best of their ability, day in and day out, keeps our company growing.

Investing in People

We’ve been a family company since 1932 and because of this, many of our employees have stayed with Carter Lumber throughout their entire careers. Yes, we work hard, but we have fun while we do it, and the results of our work are tangible. Carter Lumber has grown exponentially over the past decade with no signs of slowing down. Our success is because we have the best people in the industry. We treat them as such, investing back into our people and assets to give them the tools they need to succeed.

Fun is Fundamental

We hear it all the time from our employees, customers and vendors, "It's a Carter Lumber event, I knew it was going to be fun." As a large company, we take pride in the fact we haven't lost that aspect of our business. It means everything to us that our employees truly enjoy coming to work every day, not only because they're challenged, but too, because they know they'll be spending the day doing something they love with others that have the same passion.

We encourage and invest in getting our people together inside and outside of work, to enjoy time with each other. From cookouts in the yard, to market family picnics, and even our President's Club trip, where we reward our top performers with a resort vacation, we love when our people get to spend time together. We know the bonds built during those times transfer over to help Carter Lumber in immeasurable ways.

Family of Companies

Today Carter Lumber is represented by seven brands servicing professional builders and homeowners across thirteen states. Many of our brands have serviced their local areas for more than fifty years and we're excited for them to be part of our family of companies for the next fifty plus.
