The History of Boone County Lumber
In 1965, Howard Eiffert established Boone County Lumber at 1100 Rogers Street, next to a rail line, in Columbia, Missouri, the seat of government for the county named after Nathan and Morgan Boone, two sons of famed pioneer Daniel Boone.
Fittingly, two sons now co-manage the business their father founded. Greg serves as the company's president while Brad acts as vice president.
Greg earned his bachelor's degree in business, with an emphasis on computer programming, from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. He worked as a programmer at Monsanto before returning to the family business in 1985.
Brad obtained a bachelor's degree in economics and a master's degree in business administration from Mizzou's home campus in Columbia, then served as an active duty U.S. Air Force pilot for eight years. He worked for Frank Paxton Lumber in Chicago, and for International Paper in Columbia, before joining his brother in 1993.
Boone County Lumber, the parent company of Boone County Millwork and BCM Commercial, serves a diverse range of building material needs throughout Central Missouri from a total of three locations. The company regularly serves the residential, commercial and remodeling needs of the Columbia, Jefferson City and Lake of the Ozarks markets and all the surrounding areas. Via www.bclumberstore.com, Boone County Lumber offers many products available for immediate shipping across the United States.
Innovation and industry leadership are joined equally with an atmosphere sincerely dedicated to customer service.
The Eifferts attribute the company's success and growth to a vision that emphasizes employees as vital partners, and client service as their only product.
