HUNTSVILLE — The ownership is changing but the name remains the same.

“This longtime, family-owned business has a deep commitment to its community, customers and employees,” said Spahn & Rose CEO Dave Davis. “Those values dovetail beautifully with Spahn & Rose. We’re extremely proud to have City Lumber join the Spahn & Rose family.

City Lumber was founded in 1974 and, after purchasing it in 1980, Dick Strobel steadily grew the business over the decades, emphasizing community involvement and while providing high-quality building materials to northern Alabama. In 2010, Strobel’s daughter Gina and son-in-law Jason Terry purchased the company.

“Our family business has been the center of our lives for the past few decades, and we’d like to thank Spahn & Rose for its commitment to City Lumber, our employees, and our community,” Terry said. “We’re proud of what our family has built and we are excited to see it continue with Spahn & Rose.”

The name will remain City Lumber, and local management will not change. City Lumber is a 49-year-old company and is known throughout north-central Alabama for providing high-quality building materials such as decking, doors, siding and windows.
