     Company History
        The Mulherin Family has been connected to the timber industry since the 1800’s. The present company, Mulherin Lumber Co., was started in 1937 by Louis Mulherin on 13th Street in Augusta, GA. It was located in the old bottling plant for Belle of Georgia Brewery. Despite two fires, the company survived.
        With World War II starting, business increased because Camp Gordon (now Fort Gordon) was built. Mulherin Lumber Co. furnished the materials, purchasing and contracting for the first building located on Tobacco Road, just off Highway #78, west of the city. During this period, Tony Mulherin joined his brother in the business. In 1947 the company incorporated.
       After the war, business was brisk because of veterans loans for the service people, however, there were periods of ups and downs. DuPont built a big facility in South Carolina referred to as the “Bomb Plant”. Later there was a rush by the local business people called “the committee of 100” to lure new industry to the area because most of the manufacturing was related to cotton. The first big plant was a paper company located on the Savannah River in the south part of Richmond County.
       In the interim, Louis Mulherin JR, who started working in 1948, came in full time after a mandatory two year hitch in the military during the later part of 1955. Donald Grady followed after marrying Marian Mulherin.
       The company remained on 13th Street and the first expansion was in 1976 when Louis Mulherin III graduated from college and was put in charge of the “truss plant” located on Wheeless Road. This was followed by the purchase of Columbia Supply Co. on Bobby Jones Expressway in 1978.
       Mark Mulherin followed his brother Louis in the business and went to Bobby Jones with Don Grady. The Grady boys followed with Sean going to the truss plant and Mike going to Bobby Jones.
       The 13th Street store was remodeled in the latter part of the 1980’s and then was more or less forced out by Government expansion. This store closed in 1988 and the Bobby Jones store was enlarged. Fifteen years later in 2003, more room was needed. The Bobby Jones store was moved to our present location, 705 Industrial Park Drive in Evans, GA.
