Leadership Team

Established in 1971 by Rick Richter, Western Woods has been built from the ground up to be an influencer in the wood distribution industry. For over 45 years we have provided modern, in-demand hardwood, softwood, engineered and composite materials. It has never been our goal to be the largest, but to be the best.

At Western Woods, we strive to be innovators in our industry, staying ahead of current trends and constantly on the look out for new ways to provide better value to our customers. And as of 2017, we’ve expanded our reach with a second location positioned in Southern California. We listen to customer needs – your needs – and react to them quickly, delivering the results you need for success. Through our experience, our knowledge, and our ambition, we are able to provide top-notch products and services. Let us help you grow your business.

As a family owned and operated business, we know the value of maintaining strong relationships. And it is because we value our relationships, whether with suppliers or customers, that we guarantee we will provide you the best service throughout California. As said by our founder Rick Richter, “Do what you say you’re going to do, treat your suppliers like customers, and the customer always comes first.”
