PaFIA would like to thank our corporate member Tague Lumber. Tague Lumber has supported PaFIA in the past and continues to do so with their membership renewal!
Tague Lumber supplies the building materials for set building and construction for Pennsylvania productions.
Since 1908, Tague Lumber has been providing quality building materials at reasonable prices to the tri-state area. They have seven convenient locations in Philadelphia, Media, Phoenixville, Kennett Square and Doylestown. All of their locations carry only the best quality of building materials, lumber and a wide variety of tools and hardware. Tague lumberyards feature convenient drive-through warehouses and easy loading, or fast delivery to your jobsite.
With over 109 years of business experience to draw on, Tague Lumber continues to meet the challenges of the changing marketplace by offering unsurpassed customer service, fair pricing, quality products, and fast delivery…If you need building materials—Tague Lumber can supply what you want—exactly where you want it!
They first heard about PaFIA through Sun Center Studios and were inspired to join PaFIA because of the economic benefits that production brings to it’s business.
Katie Connor, their director of Advertising told us that in just the last several years Tague Lumber has provided building materials to over twenty-five film productions. Consequently, that influx of business necessitated our hiring new salespeople and billing clerks, adding yard guys to fill orders and recruiting more truck drivers to make deliveries. So, while Tague Lumber employees do not work directly for the film industry they have indirectly benefitted from the film productions lured here by the film tax credit.
Film production in Pennsylvania matters to Tague Lumber. ‘Productions create a domino effect on the local economy. When film productions come to town that means the obvious infusion of cash into the community in the form of: lodging, food (catering and local dining), supplies, equipment and additional staff. The opportunities the film credit have created for Tague Lumber have been remarkable. In our case filming in Pennsylvania means a boom in building materials since every film production needs to construct new stage sets.’
Looking to the future of film in Pennsylvania, Tague Lumber believes that the efforts of PaFIA give a voice to companies like theirs that might not be factored into the positive economic metrics attributed to the Film Tax credit. PaFIA accurately relays the benefits generated by film productions and the effect on local businesses like Tague Lumber.
PaFIA appreciates support from Tague Lumber! PaFIA would like to thank Kevin, Katie Connor, and all the folks at Tague Lumber for their support over the past 5 years.
