Dickson’s Stewart Builder Supply Celebrates Century of Existence

DIY customers make up a percentage of business as well. “Coming out of the 70s, we went to exclusively servicing contractors. We are open to the public, but our main focus is on residential construction in Middle Tennessee,” says Halliburton. “We basically do framing lumber, millwork, windows, doors, roofing, siding, for professional contractors.”  Over the decades, Stewart Builder Supply has become something of a community institution. With additional locations in Brentwood and Hopkinsville, Ky., they serve all of Middle Tennessee.

“Back then, sawmills were mobile,” says Sales Manager Jonathan Halliburton. “Sawmills went where the logs were.” Begun by Emit Wilson Stewart in 1921 as E.W. Stewart Lumber Company, the company first operated as a sawmill.

Up through the 1970s, Stewart built homes. Around that time, the company began to change its business strategy. Dickson’s Stewart Builder Supply is celebrating its centennial this year and the business’ representatives are the co-grand marshals of the Old Timers Day Parade in Dickson on Sept. 25. 

“We worked through the Great Depression, through various recessions, and housing declines. And, of course, pandemics, wars, and everything else. And made it through that,” Halliburton said. The most recent of these challenges, COVID-19, had an unexpected outcome for Stewart Builder Supply. As one can imagine, a century of business isn’t always easy.

Navigating Great Depression, recessions  The business is still owned by the Stewart family.
