American businessman Joe Hardy is the creator and CEO of the 84 Lumber Company that has an estimated net worth of 41.2 billion. The founder holds a degree in industrial engineering in the University of Pittsburgh. After graduation, he founded the Green Hills Lumber Company. In 1956, he joined his younger brothers to start a cash and carry lumber yard in the rural town of Eighty Four, Pennsylvania. The founder named his new firm 84 Lumber since he liked the name of the small town.

In addition, it has the Mystic Rock golf course which was designed by Pete Dye. It was the house to the PGA Tour’s 84 Lumber Classic from 2002-2006. An ambitious entrepreneur at a really young age, he’s been successful in managing the business. Since then, the business has exploded to be the third largest home improvement chain in America.
