About Us

In 1906, Tum-A-Lum Lumber Company of Walla Walla, Washington was founded with the principle that every product and service offered by the company would benefit its customers. Over time, as the Tum-A-Lum Lumber Company grew, it continued to hold true to that founding principle.

TAL Holdings LLC is a family-owned company of lumberyards in the Pacific Northwest that traces its family roots to the founder of Tum-A-Lum Lumber Company. Today, TAL Holdings LLC and its divisions still adhere to the founding principles of the original Tum-A-Lum Lumber Company. The premise for starting Tum-A-Lum Lumber in 1906 still remains today in TAL Holdings’ mission statement: We help build better communities.

As consolidation of family owned lumberyards and hardware stores continues, TAL Holdings is maintaining the legacy of those individual operating units by using its scale, combined with an established local brand, to achieve a winning combination of the power of a local community presence with the strength of the home office.

The TAL Holdings family of companies serve a wide variety of the home construction and home improvement market with a wide range of goods and services for new residential and commercial construction, as well as remodels and home improvement projects for DIYers, contractors and remodelers.
