BHT-sm-News-1At the dawn of the 20th century, a small wholesaler of hides, furs and wool first opened its doors on historic Morris Avenue in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. Since 1900, Birmingham Hide & Tallow Company, Inc. has had one business philosophy: take care of your customers, and the rest will take care of itself.


In the mid-1930’s, the Vickers family purchased the business from the original proprietor, and a family tradition was born. Originally from Lebanon, Tennessee, the Vickers migrated south to Alabama to first work in, and eventually acquire the business. Since the Great Depression, the Vickers family has been devoted to serving customers throughout the Southeastern United States.
