Testimonials

Dennis Verrill
Sawmill Manager in Pittsfield

“The whole culture and concept of making wood has changed over time, and it is really driven by listening to what exactly the customer needs. We are constantly asking ourselves, ‘How perfect can we make each board? How does every board look? Does every board count?’ Together with our customers we are producing the best possible product for every project.”

Dan Wetmore
Finish Products Manager in Casco

“Our lumber is ready only when the average moisture content and standard deviation meets or exceeds our customers drying standards, no matter how long it takes in the kiln.”



Andy Bean
Moulder Operator in Bethel

“My responsibility is to make sure that the milling is the top quality that is expected. I feel my job is to make sure every board that we put out is at its best, and that the milling is what the customer expects.”

“For years U.S. Lumber has been a proud distribution partner for Hancock Lumber Pine. Today, we may be more honored to represent them than ever before. Through an extreme effort from the entire Hancock production team they are shipping a product where every board actually does count for the dealer and for the end user. I have seen them make it, and I believe that our customers will choose Hancock Lumber day in and day out because it is uniquely suited to their needs for trouble free, entirely usable, and completely beautiful Eastern White Pine.”
