Relentless for our partners

We help build tomorrow. When a home is built in the US, there’s a strong chance we helped buy or sell the material or product.

This is all made possible by our holistic view of markets, openness to change, efficiency, and drive to innovate.

Built on a foundation of trust

Our companies help market or purchase building products, but ultimately we are in the relationship business. Customer service is of great importance to us.

For the past 60 years, our company has been powered by people who don't make promises lightly. Our respected reputation has been built on years of keeping our word and valuing our customers.

Stewards of sustainability

We are honored to trade one of the most sustainable materials in the world. The "manufacturing facility" to produce wood is a forest that provides animal habitats and actually cleans the air instead of polluting it. Once harvested and put to use, timber contributes to the capture and sequestering of CO2 instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. Processing wood uses less energy and produces less pollution than other major manufactured building materials.
