MacDonald & Owen empowers businesses by providing wholesale wood products. Hundreds of manufacturers and distributors worldwide use M&O products to focus on the work that counts - making sustainable wood products accessible to their communities. 

In the beginning . . .

Before Archie MacDonald founded MacDonald & Owen, he was the sales director at Webster Industries - the largest hardwood company in Wisconsin at the time. Frustrated with the antiquated ways of the hardwood industry, he set out to pioneer a lumber company that was different from all the competition. 

A phrase Archie often shared with our current President and Owner, David Twite.

"The only thing you really have is your honor. There's plenty of money to be made. So treat people right. If you cheat people and lie just to make a few extra dollars, no one will trust you." 

Those ideals have continued on throughout our 50+ years of business as we seek  to provide top quality wood products to all we work with.

Our History


Archie MacDonald with Bill Owen founded MacDonald & Owen Veneer & Lumber Co., Inc. in with the intention of being different than other lumber companies. 

High-quality and unbelievable service were foundational concepts that Archie built his company upon and these are ideals that still drive MacDonald & Owen today.

“Profits will come if you just do it right” is a quote that still rings in the hearts of MacDonald & Owen’s employees and continues to dictate all business transactions with the company’s customers and vendors alike. 


After 30+ years as president of MacDonald & Owen Veneer & Lumber Co., Inc., Archie MacDonald passed full ownership of the company to its current President & Owner, David Twite. During his time leading the company, there has been significant change and growth.


The first, and perhaps most monumental change after David's ownership, was the acquisition of a concentration yard in Brookville Pennsylvania. 


MacDonald & Owen expanded again with the addition of a concentration yard in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 

October 2015

MacDonald & Owen acquired what used to be the Original Duncan Yo-Yo factory in Luck, WI.

February 2020

Right before COVID-19 spread across the United States, MacDonald & Owen made it's most recent acquisition of St. Croix Valley Hardwoods - which is now the hub of MacDonald & Owen's dimensional facility which produces drawer sides, glued panels, moulded products, and more!
