This Is Our Story

A family owned business since 1983

A Humble Start

The Long Family started the R.W Lumber & Box Company in 1983. As a family owned business, they put their talents and experience together to build it from the ground up. When they first started out, they had minimal equipment and supplies. And yet, with hard work and determination, the family saw the business grow and develop into a successful company that served the community and the needs of their clients.

Rodney Long started working with his dad in the timber business long before the company was founded. He learned the tricks of the trade including how to identify, cut, haul, and skid high grade lumber, timber, and logs.

As their business grew, the Long family developed US patents for wooden boxes which gave a stronger advantage over other box and crate designs. 40 years later, these designs are still being used. 

Rodney lives by the statement: “If I help enough people get what they need, I’ll get what I need.”
