American Lumber is the dream of Jacob Crews. This dream led to opening the doors of American Lumber LLC on May 10th 2002, in a partnership with Bob Crews and Kent Gutches. American Lumber moved to 6800 Crater Lake Hwy in 2012 and bought out Kent in 2013, forming a 50/50 partnership with Bob and Jake. Jake continued the great services that American Lumber provided the community and ensured outstanding customer relations within this business.
Jacob passed away on June 13th 2016, creating obvious changes in operations. In January of 2018, Bob purchased 100% from Jake’s estate. Towards the end of 2018, Danny Acrey, a friend of Jake’s, approached Bob after seeing the opportunity to bring Jake’s game plan back into play. Danny soon got tagged with the make-it-happen job and joined 50% ownership along with Bob Crews. In doing so, he hired Mikalah Wilson as operations coordinator/ office manager. American Lumber is now off and flying again .
Bob Crews grew up in Grants Pass, surrounded by a family of sawmill and logging operation owners. Bob graduated from Grants Pass High School in 1965. After high school he went into the Military, which included 23 months in Viet Nam as a heavy equipment operator. He worked with Naval Mobile Construction Battalions #4 & #10. Post Military service, Bob had all the drive in the world to attend college to higher his education. He attended “SOC” Ashland and “OTI” Klamath Falls from 1969 thru 1972.In Bob’s working career he has managed a farm in Australia, driven log trucks, hauled lumber and worked with building materials. He was a production manager in a re-manufacturing plant and new home construction. Eventually he found himself actively working as a commissioned lumber trader with Western Lumber and has been doing that since 1992. Bob married Carolyn Crews in 1975. They have two sons, Josh and Jake. Most of the leisure time is spent traveling with his wife, golfing, fishing, hunting and hanging out with his five grand kids.
