A Humboldt County Original since 1974

Being in business for over 45 years is a testament to the creative resilience of the ever-evolving Dazey's Inc. Team.

Birthed in humble entrepreneurial beginnings and from the maverick spirit of Stephen Dazey in 1974, Dazey's Inc. is dedicated to providing excellent service and products to our customers, taking great care of our employees, as well as donating to local community causes. Our history has given us a healthy foundation from which we are growing.

We are an E.S.O.P!!

E.S.O.P. stands for Employee Stock Ownership plan, which is a employee benefit plan, similar in some ways to a profit-sharing plan. In an E.S.O.P., a company sets up a trust fund, into which it contributes shares that are distributed to employee accounts yearly.


Stephen Dazey | Founder

Dazey’s Inc. became an E.S.O.P in 2016 after Stephen Dazey altruistically decided to sell the company back to the employees. Stephen had started the company in 1974 selling glass, windows and lumber which he would bring up himself in his pickup truck from the Bay Area. As time went on, customers would ask him to bring in other items to sell, ranging from fireplaces to chicken manure. He continued to listen and tune in to the suggestions the community was asking for, and quickly, Dazey’s Supply grew to be the cornerstone that it is today. Stephen now lives happily retired in Southern Humboldt, still helping out others as a philanthropist.
