Established in 1848, Hancock Lumber Company is a sixth-generation, family-owned business operating a land company, a sawmill division, and a network of retail lumberyards, home design showrooms, and a truss manufacturing facility. Led by their 530 employees, Hancock has four times been selected as a ‘Best Place to Work in Maine and was recognized as the 2017 national ProSales ‘Dealer of the Year’. Four of their locations have received OSHA’s highest safety certification, earning SHARP certifications at their Casco, Bethel, Pittsfield sawmills and Bridgton lumberyard. The company is also a past recipient of the Maine Family Business of the Year Award, the Governor’s Award for Business Excellence, and the MITC ‘Exporter of the Year’ award.
Hanging on the wall in the company’s main office in Casco Village is an original copy of a hand-written contract dated October 4th, 1848 for the construction of a new mill for the grand sum of $840. Family Business Magazine recognizes Hancock Lumber as the 71st oldest family business in America.
