history2David TwiteThe year was 1968, and MacDonald & Owen Veneer & Lumber Co., Inc was the dream that turned in to a reality. With an already-accomplished career in the hardwood industry, Archie MacDonald founded the company that bears his name with the intention of being different than other lumber companies he would be competing with. High-quality and unbelievable service were foundational concepts that Archie built his company upon and these are ideals that still drive MacDonald & Owen today. “Profits will come if you just do it right” is a quote that still rings in the hearts of MacDonald & Owens employees and this slogan continues to dictate all business transactions with the companys customers and vendors alike.
After over 30 years as president of MacDonald & Owen Veneer & Lumber Co., Inc. in 2001 leadership of MacDonald & Owen was fully turned over from Archie MacDonald to its current owner, David Twite. David has been president & owner of MacDonald & Owen Lumber Company for 15 years and in that time the company has seen much change and growth. The first, and perhaps most monumental change, was the expansion of MacDonald & Owen through the 2010 acquisition of a concentration yard in central Pennsylvania. Four years later, in the spring of 2014, MacDonald & Owen expanded again with the addition of a concentration yard in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Most recently, MacDonald & Owen has also added a facility in its home state of Wisconsin. The newest concentration yard in Luck, WI was acquired in October of 2015 and demonstrates again the growth and viability of MacDonald & Owen Lumber Company under Twites leadership.
Despite much change and rapid growth from 2001 to the present, MacDonald & Owen has maintained its early ideals. High-quality lumber delivered with unbelievable service is what makes MacDonald & Owen capable of consistently delivering “Hardwoods Done Right.”
