ABOUT US

Grandpa John Sixt began his feed business in 1913. Being a German immigrant with an “iron will” and a dream of having his own business, he had the right combination of hard work, ethics and ambition to achieve his success. Ed Sixt Jr. joined his father in 1932 and quickly learned that hard work and dedication go hand-in-hand when you run a family business.

With the business being so successful, they decided to expand to lumber and building materials in 1956. This brought on new demands and challenges.

Then, in 1961, tragedy struck when fire destroyed their business in Yorkshire. This proved to be a turning point for the Sixt family. That year they decided to rebuild the business in Chaffee and John O. Sixt, Ed’s oldest son, began working alongside his father. It wasn’t until 1976 that they decided to discontinue the feed business and concentrate on lumber and building supplies.

Then, in 1986, they took a giant step and expanded the business with a second location in Little Valley.

Sixt Lumber has always tried to provide their customers with top quality service with a “personal touch” and their employees are a fine group of people who work hard to provide this service. They give new meaning to the words “Family Business.”

But, personal family service does not guarantee success. Without your patronage and support, Sixt Lumber would not be successful. The owners and employees of Sixt Lumber thank you for your continue business and friendship.
