Our Mission: Serve With Excellence!

IN 1949

Learn about Nashville Walker Lumber and Supply’s 75-year history serving Nashville and Middle Tennessee. Our founder, Robert Walker, returned from World War II and started his own lumber company. What began as a small operation specializing in strip flooring, would eventually grow into a thriving business that has weathered many storms.

1973 - 2015

Starting in 1973, under the leadership of Bob Harwell (Robert Walker’s son-in-law), a Vietnam veteran and recent college graduate, the company evolved and continued to diversify, eventually becoming the first lumberyard in Tennessee to have Piggy Back forklifts on the back of their delivery trucks. Despite facing challenges such as the expansion of Home Depot and the closure of over half of the lumberyards in Nashville, Walker Lumber thrived.

2016 - 2022

Since 2016, under the ownership of Ray Hayles and Scott McMillan, Nashville Walker Lumber and Supply continues to innovate and modernize. Their focus on building a best-in-class management team and implementing technology while maximizing efficiency has put them at the forefront of the industry. But perhaps their greatest accomplishment is their nationally recognized “Second Chance Program,” which partners with local ministries to provide hope and restore dignity to people emerging from prison and addiction recovery.


We are proud to announce that in 2023, Walker Lumber and Supply was named Dealer of the Year by LBM Journal, a testament to their culture based on hospitality and service.
