Alamo Forest Products was launched in 1893 in San Antonio, TX, as Vaughan Lumber Co., by George C. Vaughan, with two partners, in February 1893, to serve the lumber industry as a wholesale distributor. In those days , the company would have contracted with various sawmills to purchase their production on a yearly basis. It was then the company's job to sell the production of the mills. At that time, sales offices ranged from Chicago to Mexico City.

As time went by, the company evolved, was incorporated and changed its name to Geo. Vaughan & Sons, and later Vaughan & Sons, Inc. Alamo Forest Products was once the Lumber Division of Vaughan & Sons, Inc. The company was one of the first in Texas to manufacture wood trusses and wall components at various times in the manufacturing and distribution mills, the aluminum windows manufacturing business, the kitchen cabinet manufacturing business.
