The Young family has been in the lumber business for more than 150 years. In 1948, CT Young began manufacturing stair treads with only three employees. Now, four generations later, Young's workforce of 200 employees manufactures a full line of millwork, exterior door sills, and exterior frames.
Young also operates a complete lumber division, which has been - and will continue to be - one of the keys to Young Manufacturing's great success.
Young started as a family business and will stay a family business. So proud are the Youngs of their tradition of craftsmanship, their good name goes on every product before it goes out the door.
