Flint lumber company celebrates 100 years of continuous business
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.
