Page Lumber, Millwork, & Building Supplies, originally known as H. G. Page & Sons, is celebrating its 100th anniversary, marking a century of service in the building supplies industry. Since its inception in 1924, with Henry G. Page, Sr.'s purchase of a Sears & Roebuck concrete block machine, Page Lumber has been providing building materials and playing a key role in the development of the Hudson Valley and surrounding area in New York.
"As we celebrate a century of service our evolution is a story of resilience, innovation, and unwavering dedication to the customers we serve," said Mark Whitney, CEO of Page Lumber, in a written statement. "Page Lumber continues to be a thriving family business, with the grandchildren of Henry Page, Sr., representing the third generation, actively involved as the board of directors. Here's to another hundred years of excellence and growth, guided by the legacy and values of the Page family."
Beginning as a modest operation on Manchester Road in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Page Lumber has undergone remarkable growth from producing cement blocks to offering a wide range of products including roofing, insulation, and becoming a well-stocked lumberyard. The Poughkeepsie store, where it stands today, opened in the 1970s on the property where Henry Page, Sr. was born.
The Page family, with Henry, Jr., John, and Bill, who recall their childhood days unloading rail cars, have been pivotal to this growth and they continued to build upon this legacy. Along with the third generation, their commitment has not only propelled the business forward but also reinforced their dedication to serving and enhancing local communities.
In a release, the company said its 100th Anniversary "not only marks a commitment to growth and innovation but also a moment to express deep gratitude to the customers who have been integral to our history."
From its humble beginnings, the company has grown into a leader in the building industry, made possible by the foundation of trust established through Henry G. Page, Sr.'s handshake agreements. The community's stories, like those of grandparents building homes with Page materials, highlight this enduring legacy.
