McArthur Lumber: Consumers can buy direct without a middle man


business profileMcARTHUR, Ohio — McArthur Lumber and Post is located in southeastern Ohio at 31310 state Route 93, McArthur, Ohio, 45651. It has been producing outdoor wood products for over 60 years.

Although known for making the longest lasting fence posts and guardrail posts for Ohio highways and adjoining states, McArthur now carries a complete line of fencing products such as gates, wire fencing, electric fencing, tools, post drivers, fence paint and more.


For most of McArthur’s 60 plus years in business, it sold exclusively through local farm, feed or fencing stores.

Those in need of fencing can get much higher quality products at many times less than the cheap alternatives sold by some stores because there is no longer a middleman involved. Besides saving the customer money and providing much higher quality products, McArthur is now delivering statewide with regularly scheduled route trucks.

“It just makes sense for the informed or smart shopper to buy direct from McArthur,” said Bob Marlowe, vice president of McArthur Lumber and post. “Because our valued customers get so much more for their money than anywhere else, we are seeing tremendous growth in sales, especially as word gets out that you can call McArthur direct and save,” stated Marlowe.

Business history

McArthur Lumber and post is not resting on its 60 years in business. It constantly strives to improve on its “longest lasting fence posts” with new treatments and other fencing products, such as the one of a kind staple tool recently introduced along with organic fence posts.

Although oil and gas development has added to McArthur’s growth, the fact that it offers the best value on any and all fencing products is really the force behind its success.

“The future for McArthur looks brighter than ever as more and more farmers, fence builders and others find out you can call McArthur direct at 800-837-2551 and get the best deal day in and out from a company that truly appreciates its customers,” said Marlowe.
