Oak City Columns, while technically started in the fall of 2022, is rooted in 20 years of industry experience.  Husband and wife team Brandon and Leslie Willis are continuing the legacy of  Hunter Innovations.  Brandon served as Director of Operations for Hunter Innovations from 2002 to 2022 with responsibilities in sales, design, and manufacturing. Upon the previous owners’ retirement, Brandon and Leslie stepped in and thanks to our long-time customer base and valuable staff, we have been afforded the opportunity to continue as Oak City Columns.

The name has changed but the mission remains the same:

  • To advocate for our customers by equipping them to make informed design decisions.
  • To provide integrity in the products we make and the relationships that develop.
  • To value our team, as their inclusion and involvement are crucial.
  • To provide ears to listen, eyes to see obstacles, and voices to suggest solutions.
  • To earn your business each day.

While some of our products are made offsite, the vast majority of our products are made in our Raleigh, NC facility.  Our team is prepared to guide you through the manufacturing process, from blueprint to finished product.  We can examine your plans, design customized products that meet your project needs and manufacture those products from scratch.

The opportunity to gain your loyalty is an honor and our team is here to make your experience exceptional.  Contact us today!

We look forward to serving you!

“Located in the hot and humid south, I supply columns that must perform to our weather induced requirements. The pvc products manufactured by Oak City Columns support my company’s strong reputation as a source of quality products.”

-Clyde Edwards

“We use a lot of columns for the regional and national builders that we service. I depend on the Oak City Columns team to move my orders in a timely manner so that I have what I need and when I need it.”
