Wood-Mizer LLC. was founded and owned by Don Laskowski and his partner, Dan Tekulve in 1979. In 2004, both of the company founders sold their stock to the employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), which is a qualified trust that benefits the retirement of the Wood-Mizer employees.
As of July, 2011, the ESOP has purchased the balance of the shares making Wood-Mizer 100% owned by the employees.
What does this mean for you, the customer? We provide the same excellent customer service that any other company might provide, but the difference is that each employee at Wood-Mizer takes personal ownership in the work he or she does - so you can expect the best performance from us every time.
