During the early 1870’s in Knoxville, Tennessee, L.A. Galyon opened Galyon Lumber Company as a mill and lumberyard to sell wood products in East Tennessee. The firm eventually employed about sixty men to work the three-acre yard including rail sidings, dry kiln, and dry house, shipping lumber and timbers throughout Tennessee.
Eugene Galyon, L.A.’s son, continued the business in the early 1900’s. In the Pre-World War II years, Charles Paxton formed Tennessee Eastern Lumber Company to sell Appalachian hardwoods to furniture companies, and also to export hardwoods to Europe. Mr. Paxton’s son-in-law, L.A. Galyon II, took over this business after World War II utilizing his knowledge of the softwood business.
Over the years, Galyon Lumber has evolved as a wholesale supplier of heavy timber and Glulam prefabricated products, selling nationwide directly to commercial general contractors and government agencies. Shipping wood products throughout the continental United States, Galyon Lumber has become Galyon Timber & Glulam, Inc. GTG supplies many kinds of wood products with emphasis on prefabricated heavy timber, glulams, Parallam, PSL, Timber, Glulam trusses, and roof decking including hardware and shop drawings.
