As we venture into 2014, we at Crossroads Recycled Lumber want to express our gratitude for the past year. Two years ago the economy was in a very bad place, and our company was just keeping its head above the water.
Today, Crossroads has 10 employees; that’s the most we have had in our 32 years of recycling lumber. Each year the company seems to be getting bigger and better, and we could not do it without the support of all of you out there. So, Thank You!
First and foremost we want to thank our families for supporting us, for bringing love and joy into our lives, and making it possible for us to do what we do best, and provide our customers with beautiful reclaimed wood products.
Thank you to our customers, for making responsible choices in building products that help preserve our natural resources, and honor the labors of the past. Thank you especially, because your business supports our amazing, hard-working crew and their families, including 17 school-age children and infants in a small, rural community.
Thank you to the loggers and millwrights of the past, who worked hard and often risked their lives to provide the lumber that built America many years ago, and is still as solid and usable today as back then.
A special thank you to building owners, demolition companies, and local governments that choose reuse and reclamation over conventional waste for their old buildings.
And a big thank you also to all the other people along the way who make what we do possible; truckers, machinists, Richard our saw filer who provides us with 45 years of valuable sawmill experience, folks at the head of the sustainability movement, and all of you out there who appreciate the look, feel, and history of our old wood. Happy New Year!
The Crossroads Team
