Gratitude in the Workplace

The month of December sparks feelings of gratitude and thankfulness. Our employees are the first thing that comes to mind. At MCWP, our people are our greatest asset; they are truly the backbone of our company. We are grateful for our employee's hard work and willingness to serve our customers.

During the holidays, it is a time to give thanks for all the blessings we have in our lives and the influential people in our lives. At MCWP, the blessings in our lives are our families at work and home.

What MCWP Is Giving Thanks For

It’s taken the whole team, past and present, to make Madison County Wood Products what it is today–the largest pallet supplier in Missouri. Every individual employee has played a significant role in shaping MCWP.

Giving thanks means so much to us, as we have many blessings to be grateful for.

We are thankful for the Missouri forests that supply our lumber. We take a zero-waste approach to show our appreciation for the forests we harvest from. We focus on sustainability in every area, from forest management to operational management. We are passionate about managing our natural resources to ensure a healthy, viable forest for generations.

While we’ve already mentioned how thankful we are for our amazing team, we can’t stress enough just how valuable every team member is to our mission. Working at a place like Madison County Wood Products requires us to work together, in unity, to serve a higher calling. To do this, we all follow our company mission:

“With God as our foundation, we are committed to operating with honesty, respect, integrity, and as good stewards of forest resources by providing exceptional wood products that positively impact the world."
