It all began with a vision. Sherman Ramsey, founder of DHP in 1945, and his son, Jack, were dynamic individuals, with a vision to develop a successful wholesale distribution network that could meet the needs of the industrial and retail customers. They believed that by responding to customers' needs, their company would be successful. Strength and leadership set a course that allowed Diamond Hill Plywood Company to become a leading distributor of building materials throughout the southern United States.
