The Mountain States Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association’s mission is to give our members an advantage through advocacy, resources, and industry and community relationships.

The Denver Lumber Company has been a member of the Mountain States Lumber and Building Material Dealers since 1944 and we are proud to have such a vital industry organization to help our company succeed in the Denver marketplace. Organizations like the MSLBMDA are what make us unique from other industries who lack cooperation, friendships, communication, education, and social well-being. I would hate to think of what our market and our industry would be like without the MSLBMDA.

Scott Yates, President, Denver Lumber Company
