The Michigan Lumber Company is celebrating 100 years of business.

The company is the oldest, continuously operating lumber company in Genesee County.

Michigan Lumber is a third-generation, family-owned business that has operated at the same location on Clifford Street since 1916.

Wednesday, the company had a 100 year anniversary party for employees, retirees, customers and well-wishers.

"I guess I never really thought about it, but I gotta say it doesn't really surprise me much, it's always been a part of our lives and so it doesn't surprise me but I am very happy that it's still here and still vibrant," said third generation owner Gerry Haan.

Michigan Lumber Company is a full-service lumber yard that specializes in service to residential, commercial and industrial customers.

The company also specializes in custom millwork.
