Tri-State Lumber was founded in 1967 as a wholesale lumber distributor and was located on Spring Street with a small building and a rip spur unloading and staging area. The company’s core business consisting of selling West Coast Spruce Lumber to manufactured home companies in a 150-mile radius of Fulton, MS.
In 1970, West Coast mills did not manufacture mobile home specific products as the industry was still in its infancy. This created an opportunity for Homan Wood Products to be started in 1970, and the company moved to its current location. Homan Wood Products would take West Coast Spruce Lumber and remanufacture it into manufactured home specifications.
In 1977, Tri-State built our first treating plant. In late 1977 and early 1978 we built a kiln and stacker and started KDAT our treated pine boards. In 1978 Tri-State Lumber Co. invested in a planer to maximize our kiln capacity. As we continued to grow our drying, planning, and treating business. A constant problem was getting a consistent supply from small regional sawmills. We built 1987 when he built our first sawmill at the Fulton, MS location.
