Greenlawn MH Community Services is a Columbus, OH based business that was founded in 1947 by the late Floyd E. Younkin and his wife Mary Irene as Greenlawn Trailer Sales. Floyd and Mary Irene were both innovators in the manufactured housing industry. Floyd is credited with demonstrating to Redman Homes the then-revolutionary idea that a functioning bath tub could be a part of a "trailer house." Additionally, Floyd and Mary Irene developed the first manufactured housing community in Ohio to have natural gas, curbs and sidewalks.
Floyd and Irene's son Ronald has worked in the family business since being a boy and only took a break when he served his country in the Korean War. Ron and his wife Linda took over the Columbus company in the 1980s and changed the name from Greenlawn Trailers Sales to Greenlawn Mobile Home Sales, Inc. They expanded the company to included dealerships in Lockbourne and Chillicothe and manufactured housing communities throughout the state. Ron takes an active daily leadership role in the management of all business properties.
Ron and Linda's sons Brian and Brett are the third generation in this proud family business. Brian worked his way up in the company by holding various positions before assuming his senior management role while Brett acts as Greenlawn's Corporate Attorney.
Today, Greenlawn MH Community Services is still family owned and operated and is one of the largest companies in the manufactured housing industry. It operates a manufactured home sales agency, owns many manufactured home communities, provides property management services for other manufactured housing community owners and assists retail customers in the processing of manufactured home loans.
