Our History

W.T. Stocum & Sons was started in 1978 by Bill and Jim Stocum with their father, William T. Stocum. As a family-owned business, W.T. Stocum & Sons has prospered for more than 30 years based on a few basic tenets: honesty is always the best policy, high moral standards are not negotiable and trust in a relationship must be earned over and over again. It is from this foundation that we strive to make 100% of our customers repeat customers.
