Our Story

In 1910, Donaldson Lumber Company was founded by my great grandfather, Bennett William Donaldson. Following in his footsteps, my grandfather, John Bennett Donaldson Sr., and then my father, John Bennett Donaldson Jr. each made their living in the lumber + construction business in Michigan. In 1997, close to 100 years later, I founded J.B. Donaldson Company. We began as a modest commercial design-build construction company. Today, we are a premium commercial development + construction business that delivers a quality project at a great value to our customers. Our goal is to fulfill the needs of our clients on every construction project we take on. We can provide creative designs, practical solutions + innovative ideas for all your construction needs. We take very good care of our customers + look forward to serving you well, just as my great grandfather, grandfather and father did before me. Sincerely, John Bennett Donaldson III.
