Guthrie Lumber & Distribution Centers, Inc. began as Guthrie Lumber Sales and the company focused on the wholesale lumber business in the early 1980's. As a family owned business with attention to detail, and a corporate culture in which business was built on trust and one's word, the business prospered. Guthrie customer base ranged from the local hardware stores to the mega distributors and lumber dealers. Bobbie Guthrie had begun his career buying and selling lumber specializing in yellow pine. Working directly with the mills, the Guthrie Family is able to be highly competitive in the challenging building materials market.

In time Guthrie has added other building products which today includes a variety of lumber, Geodeck Fiber Alternative, James Hardie Building Products and specialty molding. The wholesale lumber, lumber specialty products, Geodeck and HardiPlank sales represent one of the Guthrie's core businesses. The second major business that Guthrie offers is its Transloading and Interim Storage that serves the Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston areas. Guthrie's three locations are quite extensive and have the ability to accommodate all types of rail cargo with outside and warehouse storage.

One of the primary costs in the commodity lumber, specialty lumber and construction material products industries is transportation. To better serve its major customer base, Guthrie expanded its locations first with the addition of the Prosper Facility for service of the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex and more recently with its Houston location.
