Truax Builders Supply
My dad started our building supply 66 years ago. It was right after World War II and times were tough. My mom and dad sold their house and pooled their money. Dad built the sales office and workshop building from scratch with help from friends and relatives. He opened the business (originally as a wood sash and door factory) in May of 1946. Mom was the receptionist, file clerk, secretary, bookkeeper, salesperson and, most important of all, main cheerleader. We had one other carpenter helping Dad make the windows and doors. It was a perfect time to start a building supply because men were returning from the war, getting married, starting families, and buying new homes. We added many other products over the years, but continue to produce beautiful VG fir windows and doors.
