Griffin Lumber & Hardware was founded in 1898 as Cordele Sash, Door and Lumber Company, and has operated continuously since its founding. The business originally consisted of an esteemed window, sash, and door craft shop, and a big band sawmill in Cordele, Georgia.
In 2013, the company changed its name to Griffin Lumber & Hardware in order to better reflect its expansion, most notably with the addition of its second location in Leesburg, and a third location in Tifton. Today, Griffin operates a total of seven locations across Georgia, and offers full-service support for home improvement needs.
