A Welcome from the CEO

At Wood-Mizer, we take great pride in helping people achieve their dreams. This begins with knowledgeable and trusted advice on the correct equipment to satisfy their needs, followed by the best service and support in the industry.

Since 1982, Wood-Mizer has served more than 80,000 customers throughout the world and we are still committed to providing each and every customer with the highest-quality equipment and service necessary to help them make a positive difference in their lives.

Before I became CEO, I was able to see firsthand the hard work, dedication, and family culture that the Wood-Mizer team and customers bring with them each day. This made me a huge fan of Wood-Mizer and I eventually became a customer! Today I, along with my wife and kids, operate my own LT28 sawmill. We all enjoy taking a downed tree from our own property and turning it into something that we can use. We have a great time producing a small amount of lumber together and it’s a fun activity that we can do as a team.

I understand you have choices when it comes to deciding on the equipment you will buy and just as important - the company you will buy from. The only advice I will give you is to insist on seeing the equipment you are considering in action before you buy. To help you do that, you can visit one of our 20+ locations in North America, or stop by and see us at one of the 200+ shows we attend every year. As part of your decision making process, we can also help you connect with a local Wood-Mizer owner to get their honest perspective.

I am humbled to be part of this amazing global family that is Wood-Mizer and I look forward to serving the ever-increasing community of owners throughout the world who are making a difference in so many ways.
