spl-logoNew to the business, but seasoned in the industry, Mike Argue and Neil Tucker became the co-owners of South Parry Lumber & Millwork in August 2015. With nearly 40 years of combined experience in the building materials industry, these entrepreneurs recognized the business opportunity available in Georgian Bay and Muskoka.

Purchasing the existing local business that had been operating for over 20 years (established in 1994) provided to be a great decision! Since their purchase, they have been expanding their services, products, employees (they employ 12 local residents), and have even successfully developed the production and services offered by the mill.

South Parry Lumber & Millwork is a full service building materials supplier and lumber yard. They provide high quality materials from framing lumber to pressure treated and cedar and are available to supply  material estimates as well as home, cottage and shop design.

Earlier in August, South Parry Lumber changed hands and the business welcomed Mike Argue and Neil Tucker as co-owners. Both Argue and Tucker have had experience in the lumber industry in Midland, Argue for 20 years and and Tucker for five. The pair purchased the business as they saw the opportunity in Georgian Bay and Muskoka for someone dedicated to the pro-contractor. The pair are geared towards servicing the contractor and leading supplies for renovations and custom building. In three short months, that pair have expanded the business from three employees to nine, purchased three new delivery vehicles and have begun the process to reopen the mill which has been closed since the late 1980s/early 1990s. Presently, the business has exceeded their wildest expectations. Pictured from left, employee Eric Charron, Mike Argue and Neil Tucker.
