Cedar Rustic History

Cedar Rustic Fence Company installed its first fence. The company initially operated under the name Cedrus Company, derived from the genus name for cedar trees.

Joseph Keefe acquired Cedrus, relocating the company to Harvey, IL. During this era, materials were sourced directly from loggers, and Cedrus milled logs on-site for fence construction.

A devastating fire destroyed the Cedrus facility. Joseph rebuilt what remained of Cedrus on 159th Street in Orland Park, where it stood as a fixture for nearly 50 years.

Joseph Keefe passed away, leaving Cedrus to his sons. The company's name gradually transformed into Cedar Rustic.


Cedar Rustic expanded operations to Plainfield, IL, acquiring an old roller rink. A tornado later destroyed the building, but thankfully no injuries occurred.

bad weather

A "100-year flood" in Plainfield washed Cedar Rustic's materials down the river. The city labeled the property a flood zone, preventing rebuilding. The company sought a new location.

The Keefe family purchased an 82,000 square foot warehouse in Joliet, IL, becoming Cedar Rustic's new home. The facility, originally built by Kemlite, had previously been used by Uno for storing playing cards and board games.

The Keefe family retired, selling Cedar Rustic to the Bergeron Family. All operations were consolidated in Joliet, and the Orland Park location was sold.

Cedar Rustic expanded production by introducing its line of vinyl fences, experiencing a sixfold increase in vinyl fence sales over the next five years.

Cedar Rustic Fence Company acquired two adjacent buildings in Joliet, expanding production and storage capacity to 100,000 square feet.

current time

Continuing expansion, Cedar Rustic Fence Company launched its line of Aluminum fences.

Today - Cedar Rustic Fence Company installs fences in over 154 townships across Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana, completing 2,500 to 3,000 fences annually. Their growth is attributed to the installation of quality products and attentive customer care.
