Lumberyard hits six-decade milestone

Cascade, Iowa-based Cascade Lumber Company, a family-owned and operated retail lumberyard, is celebrating its 60th year of operation in 2013. Operating from a single location in eastern Iowa, Cascade Lumber operates a lumberyard in addition to a full-service home center serving retail and contactor customers. In addition, floor covering sales and installation are conducted from the Cascade location and a second outlet in nearby Monticello, Iowa.

Cascade Lumber Company has a subsidiary company, Cascade Manufacturing Company, which furnishes wood and cold-formed steel truss and wall panels for residential, commercial and agricultural projects throughout the Midwest.

The yard is holding a Founders Day Friday, May 17, which is for the community and customers. And an employee appreciation day with new and former emplyoyees is set for Sunday, May 19.

Cascade Manufacturing also operates an engineered wood distribution center carrying a complete line of I-joists, LVL and LSL products. 

The diversity in products and markets has allowed for continued growth during the company’s 60-year history.
