Who We Are

Suppliers, Craftsmen and Experts Are Here to Help

We’re the professionals you turn to when you need quality, service and real expertise. The Requarth Co. houses a traditional lumber yard, a mill for custom jobs, a large inventory of quality building materials for new construction and remodeling, as well as a kitchen design showroom—Supply One.

Contractors start their day at Requarth because they know that we’re committed to doing every job right. Homeowners like us for the same reason.

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.

Our History

We Offer Value in Every Area

We’re something of an institution in Dayton. 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.

A little later, we helped out some favorite sons of the area, Orville and Wilbur Wright, when they purchased spruce from us for their early flyers. 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 built a national reputation for fine custom millwork. Our woodwork graces homes and buildings not just across Greater Dayton, but throughout the Midwest and along the East Coast. We’d be proud to include you and your project in our timeline.
