In March of 1989 when I was 16 years old I started as a yard specialist at Carter Lumber in Bowling Green Ohio. While I was there I did all aspects of the lumber yard business. In March of 1997 I was promoted as a store manager for Carter lumber. I moved to Wellston Ohio and opened a brand new Carter Lumber store. In April of 2003 I went to 84 lumber in Jackson Ohio as a outside contractor salesman. After 10 years there I decided to go back to Carter Lumber in Chillicothe Ohio as an outside salesman. In August 2019 I got a awesome opportunity to come to work at Thomas Do It Center in Gallipolis Ohio. So with over 30 years of experience in the industry I am your man for all your building material needs.

Please contact me for your new construction or major home remodeling projects.

Scott Rankin

I am a lifetime resident of Gallia County and began my career by working in the housing construction business two years before joining Thomas Do-It Center in 1989. Early on, it was a smaller company and I was able to work in many departments.

I learned to load trucks, stock the shelves, make deliveries and work the cash register. For the last 30 years I have been working with professional contractors and home owners across the tri-state in building their homes.

It has been an honor to help Thomas Do-It Center grow to where it is today. Much of my success can be attributed to staying current in upcoming products and trends in the construction business and bringing that back to our communities.

However, I owe most of my success to the many relationships I have built with my customers over the years. I have a wife of 20 years, Michelle, and two sons, Zach (26yrs) and Kyle (18yrs). I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.
