About Marks Lumber
My family has been involved in the timber products business here in Clancy, Montana for over 75 years. My Grandfather cut timbers for the underground mines in the 1930's and 1940's to complement his cattle ranching operation. My father followed in his footsteps in ranching and in sawing and selling rough-cut lumber products. Now, many years later, my wife Laura and I are proud to carry on my family’s legacy here at Marks Ranch and Lumber where we’ve grown into a full service sawmill and lumber operation serving Montana and the surrounding states. In the process we’ve built a reputation for high quality lumber products, for outstanding customer service, and as Montana’s premier source for rough-sawn beams and timbers.
We have a customer-driven focus here at Marks Lumber that has resulted in many adaptations and changes in our operation over time. What began as a small sawmill operation primarily cutting railroad ties has now grown into a multi-faceted timber products manufacturing facility that produces a broad range of products to meet our customer’s needs. And we’re not finished yet; we have our sights set on a number of additional products that we plan to introduce in the near future.
Our Operations and Products
Our operation now consists of a full-scale circle-saw sawmill, a band re-saw, a planer, a drying kiln, and multiple dry-storage facilities. Our sawmill products include beautiful rough-sawn beams and timbers as well as rough-cut dimensional lumber. Sawmill bi-products include chips, sawdust and bark mulch used for landscaping and animal bedding.
An exciting new addition in 2006 is our line of vibrantly colored mulch and chips. Our planer-mill products include an array of paneling, decking, flooring and siding products including our famous circle-sawn douglas fir tongue and groove flooring that is featured in homes across Montana. Planer bi-products include wood shavings that are an excellent animal bedding and mulching product. We’re also known for our full-log product line which includes hand-peeled driveway-entry arches, house logs and character logs.
It isn’t just coincidental that our customer base is primarily made up of long-term repeat customers. Our reputation for quality and integrity stems from the basic values that were instilled in me by my Father and Grandfather. These values are embodied in our company’s Central Purpose: To provide quality, specialty lumber products to our customers — products that are manufactured by employees that are knowledgeable both in how to produce and how to use those products. We strive to not only meet the needs of our customers, but to anticipate and plan for those needs.
