Business Spotlight: Hatboro Lumber

Hatboro Lumber, located at 199 Jacksonville Road, has been supplying Montgomery and Bucks counties with quality products, knowledgeable service, and fast delivery since 1945.

A true family-owned business, the current owner Mike Sharp who started out as yard help in 2000, eventually bought the yard in 2021 from his father Leon. The original owner, William Clayton, chose Hatboro because the property was located along the train tracks and material was delivered by rail. To this day, Hatboro Lumber still has the side tracks outside of their wall on Bonair Avenue where they would move railcars aside to unload. In 1998 Leon Sharp, the yard foreman, Robert Gledhill, the bookkeeper and Leon’s uncle, purchased Hatboro Lumber from William, continuing the family approach which has garnered a host of longtime and multigenerational customers.

Hatboro Lumber is a building supply retailer which includes lumber, decking, millwork, doors, and more! They work with everyone whether a contractor, homeowner, DIY’er, or manufacturer and they also offer delivery and select milling services. They are very committed to their customers as contractors know they have the quality material they need and can get them in and out much quicker than a box store.  That includes getting material delivered to their jobsites, usually within a day.  As far as their homeowner and DIY customers, they take their time and understand what their project entails answering any questions they may have along the way.

Hatboro Lumber is not only dedicated to exceptional customer service, but with their support to the community as well. Some of their associations include The Hatboro Chamber of Commerce, local Boys and Girl Scout Troops, and Hatboro Little League as well as sponsoring and donating to support local events.
