Lumber and Building Supplies

At EBS, we pride ourselves on our quality and selection of lumber products. It’s where we got our start when the Ellsworth Lumber Co. decided to branch out nearly 60 years ago. Since then our company has grown tremendously, but we haven’t forgotten where we started.

Over the years, EBS has identified lumber mills that consistently provide material of the highest quality available. That is why you will notice the same few names regularly on the wraps that cover the lumber at our locations. Can we purchase lumber for less from other mills? Possibly. We choose not to for the reason cited in the Mission Statement of EBS, “We will continually endeavor to offer superior quality products at fair prices”. EBS has six dedicated buyers with a combined total of 145 years experience working to uphold that standard. When you shop EBS you know you’re getting superior quality for the price.
