The Same Great Service You’ve Come to Expect

YBC’s family of companies offer the same level of professional service you get from Your Building Centers.

Klinger Lumber Company was established by its founder, Earl E. Klinger in 1956. He started the business in the back alley behind his residence on East Broad Street in Elizabethville, Pa. Over the years the business grew and was eventually relocated in 1962 to its current location at 3903 Route 225 in Elizabethville. Since those humble beginnings over 60 years ago and through it’s purchase by Your Building Centers in 2017, Klinger Lumber has continued to serve the customers of Northern Dauphin County with quality building products and friendly service.

When a new business is acquired by YBC, it aligns itself with YBC’s corporate structure of 100% employee ownership. Since the staff at these businesses become employee owners, each employee now has their own personal stake in the company’s success. While now owned by Your Building Centers, Klinger Lumber and other companies such as Berlin Lumber, R.G. Miller, Palmerton Lumber, and Allensville Planing Mill continue to operate under their originally founded names. Each of these businesses have been operating in their respective communities for over half a century, and the companies have strong name recognition within those local communities they serve. Recognizing this, YBC chooses to keep their history alive while helping to expand their product base through our established channels.
