In 1990, R.J. died after a short illness. Shortly afterwards, James and Dorothy sold their portions of the business to Bob. Dodson Lumber launched their original website in 1999. In 2001, Bob’s son, Mark, joined the family business as a salesman.
Dodson Lumber and Roseburg formed a strategic partnership in 2004 which markedly increased the volume of the business through the addition of Roseburg’s engineered wood products line. The addition of the TrimJoist products shortly thereafter favorably positioned Dodson Lumber for the housing boom which accompanied the turn of the century. Bob’s son, Steve, joined the business in the fall of 2007.
Dodson Wholesale Lumber has operated continuously since 1955 and has weathered the storms of recessions, drought, and tough competition. During those 50+ years, it has experienced continuous growth and prosperity. Quality suppliers and customers have made it an enjoyable experience. Great employees and the good friends made from our customers and suppliers are the backbone of the success of the company.
