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 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 consists of a full-scale circle-saw mill, band resaw, planer, dry kiln and multiple dry-storage facilities. From our sawmill we produce beautiful rough-sawn beams, dimensional lumber, sidings and many other products. The latest addition to our products is our Elkhorn Premium Landscape Products. These consist of bark products, landscape mulch and certified engineered wood playground fiber. Our planer produces an array of paneling, decking, flooring and siding products. Our famous circle-sawn douglas fir tongue and groove flooring is featured in homes and businesses across the United States. We also are know for our full log product line which includes hand-peeled driveway and entry arches, house logs and framing 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.
Our Central Purpose
Our central purpose is 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.
