    In 2021 the employees of Ward Lumber formed the Ward Lumber Workers Cooperative and purchased Ward Lumber Company from Jay Ward. The majority of Ward Lumber Employees are now also owners and each share equally in the business. You can click here to learn about our Coop.

    The current Board of directors is made up of 7 seasoned and dedicated employees. With their relationships & technical assistance from providers and external advisors they are continuing to guide our company culture and oversee the Governance of the company.

    Jay remained as CEO to help with the transition and business continuity but announced his retirement in late 2022 & is preparing to retire at the end of 2023. Over the past three years Ward Lumber has experienced a 40% increase in sales growth and an even more impressive increase in net profitability which has provided a strong financial position for the employee owners. Ward Lumber’s strength continues to be its strong management team, experienced employees, and our commitment to the communities that we serve.

    Into the future we will be continuing with our planned management transition. A new CEO will be onboarded and it is our goal to continue to grow Ward Lumber Worker Cooperative to provide viable employment opportunities for many generations to come. We intend to communicate openly and honestly with customers, employees, vendors, and community members. We intend to foster an enjoyable work environment, working towards a common goal. We intend to continue our legacy of prioritizing customer satisfaction, while continuing to have financial growth through open communication and fiscal responsibility to increase the financial security and stability of WLWC members .
