Company History

Since 1978, A.E. Sampson & Son Ltd has provided architects, builders and homeowners with a wide variety of wood products and services that make a special difference in new construction and renovation projects. With 30 years of experience as a master cabinet maker, Alan Sampson established the company at the family farm in Lincolnville, Maine. Starting with small projects and selling hardwoods in the local area his reputation grew rapidly.

The shop soon grew into a full service millwork shop that served customers throughout Maine. Paul Sampson joined Alan full time after years working with with his father after school and on weekends. Jula Sampson started in 1986 by helping out in the lumber sheds, changing knifes and driving the truck to deliveries. Alan retired from the business in 1988 as the business grew to serve New England. Paul and Julia moved the shop to Warren, Maine to expand the flooring mill. Investments in quality machinery and advanced tooling produce flooring of remarkable quality. Flooring is custom milled in a variety of species, grades and widths and is milled by fine craftsman trained in fine woodworking. Paul Sampson works daily in the mill overseeing all operations and Jula Sampson manages all sales.

A.E. Sampson & Son remains focused on the principles that Alan started with: a love of wood, quality craftsmanship and customer service. Sampson's is large enough to handle any size project yet small enough that all orders get the personal attention of either Paul or Jula Sampson.

In Lincolnville, the family forests are a popular weekend destination for Paul and his dog, Dora. Paul has formed many fine relationships with foresters and mills for lumber that suits A.E. Sampson & Son's high standards. Jula spends her free time painting nature scenes, a chance to stay in tune with the tones and hues of nature. Paul and Jula look forward to working with you.
