Our History

The Parr Company History

Original Parr Lumber Building

Parr Lumber was established in 1930 by Dwight Parr Sr., and is still family owned and operated with locations in Oregon, Washington, and Arizona. Through our family of companies, The Parr Company is the leading provider of building materials and services to professional contractors and homeowners in the Northwest.

The Parr Company is now four distinct companies: Parr Lumber Company, Cascade Wholesale Hardware, Parr Cabinet Design Center, and Northwest Structural Components (NSC).

As a company and as individuals we can make a substantive and positive difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors.

We are proud to support organizations in our communities that provide profound resources to families in need like Ronald McDonald House Charities, Habitat for Humanity, American Cancer Society, and Autism Society. We also support local schools and community organizations with services benefiting families and children.

Through our family of companies, The Parr Company is the leading provider of building materials and services to professional contractors and homeowners in the Northwest.

Since opening the doors to our first lumber yard in 1930, we’ve remained committed to providing quality products and services. We know you could buy building materials anywhere and we appreciate the opportunity to serve you.
