all about us
In December of 1978 Tim Christian and Darrol Dowdy purchased Nichols Brothers Lumber Company from Gene and Bostch Nichols. Both Tim and Darrol having been in the construction business for many years, decided to purchase the lumber company. From a very humble beginning they built the business to a thriving company. In their agreement, Tim continued in the construction of new homes and as a partner in the lumber company. Darrol ran the day to day business of the lumber company. In August of 1998, Steve Christian, Tim's son, purchased the company and has since owned and operated.
In Febuary 2004, we sadly saw the sudden passing of Darrol, an icon to the company. He was a large asset, adviser and employee.
As we moved forward, in September 2015 the company saw a need for an equipment rental business expansion. In June 2016 the company expanded into Equipment Rental business.
The company will be continuing to expand in this area in the future.
Much has changed in the last 38 years, but we always keep in mind that our business progress is all due to our loyal past and present customers.
From all of us at Christian Dowdy we say Thank You!
