The History of Zarsky

Zarsky Lumber Company began in 1928 with two farmers named Frank and Charlie Zarsky in Woodsboro, Texas by selling lumber off the back of their pickup truck at a local café. With locations now in Victoria, Corpus Christi, Port Aransas, Kingsville, Laredo, McAllen, and Los Fresnos, Zarsky serves the needs of both contractors and homeowners throughout Texas.

As a locally operated family business, Zarsky believes that construction is a local business, and that decision making should be pushed down to those closest to their customers. They strive to adapt their products and services to their individual customers’ needs while building lasting partnerships with not only their customers but also the communities they serve. As a people-oriented company, Zarsky firmly believes that their employees are the backbone to their success. 

Zarsky is about being a family. They continue the family business tradition of the original owners. Any one of our competitors can distribute similar products. Our people are truly our greatest and most valued asset. They are what gives us our advantage over our competitors. It is our core belief that if we strive to be a family, not just co-workers, it will lead to great things for each and every one of us.

Employee & Business Testimonials

Working for Zarsky Lumber 20 something years, has been a huge part of my life. Awesome managers, co-workers, and best of all, my customers… Many I have laughed and joked with, and some I have cried with in their lowest of times. After the hurricane, Zarsky- Kodiak was there for me and my family. I have never had anyone, outside of my family, help me so much! I was deeply touched! You just don’t hear of that nowadays. Thanks for letting me share my thoughts.

From Pam Webernick, Victoria location

At Zarsky Lumber Port Aransas, we know our customers can go choose to purchase their products from anyone. That’s why we strive to meet their needs and keep them coming back. Our customers are #1 and we are here for them.

From Phil Lafara – Port Aransas

Zarsky has always treated us like family. Our relationship is more like a partnership than a supplier/ purchaser. They have always been fair and honest and have great employees like Gilbert that support our business needs.

From MPM Homes

I appreciate everything that you all do and have done for me and my company over the almost 14 years that we have been in business. Over all of those years anytime I have ever needed anything, you all have always been very attentive. It didn't make a difference if it was someone at the front counter, back in management, accounting, sales or the division president. I have always felt at home.
