About Joseph A. Hardy III

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