In 1946 William Yancey Ellis cleared off a cotton field and built a shed to house a planer mill. As one of the first local lumber yards in Cleveland County, North Carolina, Ellis supplied high quality lumber and hardware to local residences.
In the early 1950's the first dry kiln was installed to kiln dry hardwood and pine lumber. In 1958 a wood preserving plant was installed to treat lumber. Two more kilns where installed over the next 10 years.
Due to regulation changes in pallets and shipping crates world-wide, Ellis Lumber Company has now transitioned into one of the largest dry kilns for wooden pallets in the South Eastern Region. Ellis Lumber one of the best kiln dry companies in the South Eastern Region.
