At Mead Lumber, we have a clear vision: To make you feel at home from design to finish.

Our strength and secret to success lie within the heart of our organization: our dedicated team of more than 1,300 associates. We take immense pride in the fact that a significant number of our associates choose Mead Lumber as their lifetime career path, with an impressive count of associates celebrating over 30 years of loyal service to our company.

Every member of our team, from our tireless drivers and determined sales personnel to our efficient office support, skilled manufacturing teams, and experienced local management, shape our identity. They are the ones who interact with our valued customers daily, living and breathing what defines who we are.

We foster a vibrant company culture that blends dedication, teamwork, and unwavering commitment to safety.

What sets us apart is our belief in rewarding our employees well for their efforts, offering attractive compensation and benefits to keep our workforce engaged, motivated, and satisfied.

Our roots extend deep. In 1910, the Mead family started building this company with just one store in Ashland, Nebraska. This lineage has provided strong leadership and a steadfast foundation upon which we continue to build and grow. However, we are more than just a company; we are a family. Every single one of us holds a piece of Mead Lumber in our hands – because we are 100% employee-owned.

As an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) company, our team doesn’t just work for Mead Lumber; they work for themselves. Every success we attain, every milestone we reach, is a testament to their hard work and determination. Our associates, being vested stakeholders, inherently understand the value of providing excellent service. They are the drivers of our commitment to you, our customer, to deliver top-tier value in every interaction.

When you choose Mead Lumber, know that you are not merely a customer, you become a part of our story, a chapter in our journey, and a member of our family. Our team and our family are here to make you feel at home from design to finish.

Trust us to transform your dreams into reality, because at Mead Lumber, we don’t just build homes, we build relationships, and we look forward to building one with you.
