Our Culture

Wherever there is a need, that is where we want to be. We are called to be more than a company. We are called to serve others - our employees, owners, future leaders, and communities throughout the world.

Wood-Mizer has been proudly employee-owned since 2004. Today, 100% of our stock is held by our employees, and everyone who works here has the opportunity to become an owner. That sets us apart — only 1 in 200 American companies are employee-owned!


Our History

In 1982 two entrepreneurs, Don Laskowski and Dan Tekulve, designed and manufactured a new kind of sawmill that was a true innovation for the sawmilling industry. The first Wood-Mizer portable sawmill was engineered to be efficient, cost-effective, and simple to operate, so that anyone, anywhere could safely turn logs into lumber. Learn about the early products that led the way to the first portable sawmill, what it was like to work for Wood-Mizer during the early years, and how the products and company grew globally while staying true to the founders’ original philosophy.
