Who We Are

Your Local Source for Cabinetry, Lumber and More

For more than 150 years, homeowners and contractors have relied on the Requarth Company’s skilled team of professionals, craftsmen, and designers as their local source for handmade cabinets, custom kitchen designs, bathroom vanities, historically accurate moulding and siding, high-quality windows, exceptional flooring, superior lumber, and more.

Located in downtown Dayton, the Requarth Co. is a traditional lumberyard, featuring a design center for contractors to review materials with clients, a mill for custom jobs, a large inventory of quality building materials for new construction and remodeling, and a public kitchen showroom.

Our History

The Requarth mill traces its origins to a small turning shop at Fourth and Wayne. We opened our doors in 1860, founded by Henry W. Meyer and Frederick August Requarth, the great-great grandfather of current president Alan F. Pippenger and vice president John Requarth. You’ll find us today at the same Monument and Sears Street location in Dayton, where we’ve been since 1895.

Over the years, we’ve become an institution in the Dayton community, and we’ve built a national reputation for fine custom millwork. We even helped out some favorite sons of the area, Orville and Wilbur Wright, when they purchased spruce from us to construct their early flyers.

While we’re proud of our history, we’ve also got on eye on the future and the coming generations. We’re the only area lumber company to achieve both a Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Certification and a status as a Certified Green dealer.
