Employee Appreciation & Company Culture

Madison County Wood Products | Core Value | Company Culture | Employee Appreciation

Since our founding in 1981, we’ve seen tremendous success as we’ve grown from a small family-owned operation to a premiere wood products manufacturer. Generations of families have participated in MCWP's growth and success over the years. We were born to become a major entity in the wood products industry.

Fast forward 40 years, we’re one of the largest wood manufacturers in the midwest – servicing the needs of our customers with quality wood pallets and products, competitive prices, and on-time deliveries. We produce grade lumber, railroad ties, pallets, mulch, dust, and chips and take pride in our zero-waste approach.

We could not have gotten where we are today without our amazing team of employees who go above and beyond daily.
