– Wendy Scribner, HR Director
We work on being a best place to work every single day, and perhaps there hasn’t been a more challenging time than the last year and a half. Despite a global pandemic and profound market disruptors, our teams came to work every day staying clean, staying spaced, and staying strong—this unwavering approach enabled us to continue making eastern white pine, assembling trusses, delivering building materials, and servicing our customers. We should all be incredibly proud of this team effort!
An enormous THANK YOU goes out to our employees, customers, and vendors for working together throughout the last year and a half. To our employees, thank you for showing up each day and working hard despite all the challenges we faced, both professionally and personally; to our customers, thank you for trusting us to be your business partner and navigating record demand, pricing and supply chain challenges; and, to our vendors, despite the roller coaster in the marketplace, we thank you for remaining loyal to your word and our long-standing partnerships.
As a business we were fortunate that we were allowed to stay open, but most importantly we are thankful that our team stood up and took the challenge head on—we did indeed “work through it together”!! Thank you for your personal perseverance through one of the most difficult challenges we’ll face in our lifetimes, and congratulations on earning “Best Place to Work in Maine” for the 8th consecutive year!
