A Quad City Building Institution

H.O. Seiffert Lumber was established in Davenport, Iowa in 1892 to take advantage of available transportation to distribute to settlement communities in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. Today, Seiffert Lumber Company continues to build on its long, rich tradition in Eastern Iowa and is one of the oldest Quad City companies. Seiffert has been a proud family-owned business rooted in the Quad Cities for over 100 years.

In 1972, Seiffert Lumber was purchased by Wilber Burress. His son, Bill Burress, owns and operates the business today. Seiffert remains one of the Quad Cities’ leading retailers and distributors of lumber, building supplies and home improvement materials to contractors and homeowners.
