Spahn & Rose Celebrates Anniversary; Past Chronicled, Future Envisioned in HBSD Article

Throughout April, Spahn & Rose celebrates its 115th anniversary of serving Iowa homebuilders and contractors. One of the longest continually operating lumber suppliers in the country, Spahn & Rose was profiled in a recent issue of Hardware+ Building Supply Dealer magazine (HBSD).

The article chronicled Spahn & Rose’s rich, more than century-old history, and shared CEO Dave Davis’s vision for the future. Along with recounting how Spahn & Rose has weathered many challenges—the 1911 lumberyard fire, surviving the Great Depression and much more—the article detailed how the company continues to grow, citing its recent acquisition of Dunn Lumber in Geneva, Wisconsin.

Davis told HBSD that Spahn & Rose will continue to be more aggressive and disciplined in obtaining new customers while also expanding product and service offerings to complement the company’s existing business.

HBSDalso covered Spahn & Rose’s strong commitment to community service, describing the creation of the Spahn & Rose Foundation, founded in 1950 to improve the lives of those within the company’s service area.
