For more than 100 years, 172 to be exact, S.W. Collins Company has been serving the northern Maine community supplying lumber and other building materials to builders, remodelers and homeowners – and providing a livelihood for generations of employees. In recognition of these accomplishments, the Company has been named a member of the LBM Century Club by LBM Journal, which is the leading media company serving America’s lumber and building material industry.
“We’re honoring lumberyards with a century or more of service to their communities and to our industry,” says LBM Journal Publisher and Editor Rick Schumacher. “Since 1844, S.W. Collins Company has served customers without fail. They have weathered economic storms with resilience and have adapted to ever-changing trends in housing, business management, environmental requirements and design trends, and have kept communities strong along the way.”
“We are honored to be included in this special group of building material dealers and we attribute our continuity to our loyal customers and our dedicated talented employees that are driven to serve the customers and their communities in which they live,” said Sam Collins, current president of the company.
S.W. Collins is a fifth-generation Aroostook County lumber and building supply dealer with locations in Lincoln, Houlton, Presque Isle, Caribou and Fort Kent. Their commitment to offering excellent products and legendary service has been the core of the business since 1844.
S.W. Collins Co. was recently named a member of the LBM Century Club by LBM Journal, which is the leading media company serving America’s lumber and building material industry. Employees at the Caribou location were presented with the honorable plaque. The original lumber mill opened at the same plot of land in Caribou in 1844.
