About Beatty Lumber & Millwork Company

Beatty Lumber & Millwork Company was established and opened for business at its present location in Upper Darby in September of 1923. Mr. B. H. Beatty, Sr. and Mr. C. R. Owens both served as co-owners until 1955. Mr. B. Harper Beatty, Jr. assumed the owner/manager position in that year. Following Mr. Beatty's retirement in 1999, his grandson Eric D. Tucker assumed the role of General Manager.

Delivery of materials in the old days was primarily by railroad car, with a main spur running directly through the property and continuing north to the now non-existent Young Supply Company and Lobb Lumber Company in Havertown, which was across from the chewing gum factory. All lumber and millwork was off-loaded by hand from the railroad cars to wherever the material was to be stored. The first fork-lift used at Beatty Lumber was in 1967.

In 1970 fire completely destroyed the office/warehouse complex located in the southeast corner of the property. Over succeeding years, all wooden structures have been replaced with concrete block structures.

Early on the morning of August 1, 2004, a flash flood inundated the yard, a shed, and the store, resulting in a considerable loss of inventory. Through the help of many of our contractor customers who assisted in cleaning the mud off the premises, Beatty Lumber was only closed for one business day.

Today, Beatty Lumber continues to provide a wide selection of top-quality materials for the building needs of Delaware County and beyond. Our fleet of delivery trucks has grown to provide even faster and more efficient delivery methods, including a piggyback forklift. Our staff of 20 full-time employees remain committed to providing friendly, knowledgeable sales and service to our customers.

We have been serving homeowners, DIYers, remodelers, and contractors on both the residential and commercial sides for over 88 years.
