Gillespie Lumber Company was established in 1965 by R.L.  Gillespie and his son Lloyd to meet the ever growing demand for hardwood products.  We are now beginning the third Generation with the announcement of Robyn Gillespie taking over management of the mill.  Over the years we have become a well known supplier of hardwood products throughout the Texas/Louisiana region. 

Gillespie Lumber Company initially produced quality hardwood cross ties for the railroad industry along with board road materials for oil exploration.  In order to better serve our customers  we have expanded our manufacturing to include Crane/Dragline Mats and Laminated Mats.  We also sell special cut lumber to pallet manufacturers/facilities, and dunnage and timber to shipping companies needing the strength that can only be hardwood can provide.  Stevedores use our custom sized hardwood timbers and hardwood dunnage to secure some of their most expensive loads before transport.

We are also proud to announce that we now rent Crane/dragline, and Laminated mats.  We have flexible terms and are willing to work with you on all your rental needs.

We are poised for the 21st century’s hardwood needs and would love to help you with our knowledge and experience.
