Established in 1971 by Rick Richter,Western Woods has been built from the ground up to be a leader in the lumber production and distribution industry. Rick launched the company with a goal: to aim not to be the biggest in the industry but to be the best. For 50 years, we have been delivering on that vision. And we're just getting started. We pride ourselves in successfully supplying in-demand, top-quality services, lumber products, and building materials to clients throughout the West Coast.

“Do what you say you’re going to do, treat your suppliers like customers, and the customer always comes first.” 

-Rick Richter
