About Us

Established in 1949 by Lloyd Olson, Crenshaw Lumber Co., Inc. has been successfully serving the professional contractor in the greater Los Angeles area since its inception.  With 2 large production yards strategically situated in Los Angeles and Orange counties, Crenshaw Lumber can effectively reach the professional contractor and framer throughout Southern California.  Over the past 10 years, Crenshaw Lumber has emerged as a leading provider of building materials and services to professional contractors throughout the region.  Throughout the years, Crenshaw Lumber has worked hard to develop strong, mutually beneficial relationships with both customers and vendors, and it is the strength of these partnerships that has built loyalty, from customers and vendors alike.

Although framing lumber is our core business, Crenshaw Lumber Co., Inc. has grown beyond being a framing lumber company.  Since opening the doors to our first lumber yard in 1949, we've remained committed to providing quality products and services.  With this philosophy, the company continuously seeks to better serve our loyal customer base; and to this end, the company over the years has developed 3 distinct, yet integrated businesses:  Crenshaw Lumber Company, Crenshaw Builders Hardware, and Crenshaw Door & Windows.   And since 2017, Crenshaw Lumber has been manufacturing and distributing prefabricated arches.  With onsite manufacturing, we can receive the builder’s plans, calculate the arch dimensions, then manufacture and deliver to the jobsite. 

From its beginning as a lumber and milling business, Crenshaw Lumber Co., Inc. has always sought to provide value to its customers, and this philosophy continues today.  In addition to the vast array of products, services, manufacturing and remanufacturing, we feel that one of our greatest strengths is our sales team.  Our experienced sellers are devoted to servicing the needs of our customers, by providing competitive solutions to the many challenges our professional contractor customers face. 

Operationally, Crenshaw Lumber Co., Inc. has much to offer.  The company has an extensive mill, which includes band saws, rip saw, resaws, cut-to-length saws, table saw, and a unit saw.  Our yard team is very adept at building load packages, whether for custom or tract homes, multi-family jobs and commercial work.  We maintain a fleet of 14 trucks, giving us the ability to deliver effectively and efficiently throughout the region. 

Crenshaw Builders Hardware has been a fixture at the company since 1992.  We are proud to be a Simpson Strong-Tie distributor.  In addition to our Simpson line of structural hardware, we distribute an extensive array of hardware for both the concrete contractor trade, and the framing contractor. 

Over the years, Crenshaw Doors & Windows has partnered with the industry’s highest quality manufacturers.  We are proud to offer products from La Cantina, Marvin, Milgard, Western Windows and others.  Our sales staff is both experienced and consultative, always seeking to meet and exceed the customer’s value expectations.
