This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Talk about a classic and a key contributor to the Idaho economy! After 60 plus years of being in business, Boise Cascade continues to have a significant impact on the Gem State. Not only is this wood products manufacturing company contributing to a key Idaho industry, manufacturing, it’s also putting Boise on the map as the Boise Cascade headquarters because it’s the largest wholesale building products distributor in the United States, serving 34 yards nationwide.

Boise Cascade is known for engineering wood products and plywood used in construction. As a wholesaler, they sell directly to lumber yards, so you may not see their name, but you can feel their impact throughout the building industry across the U.S. and CNBC reports that optimism among construction contractors is at a record high.

Boise Cascade CEO Tom Corrick says with the housing market so hot right now, business is very strong. Their focus on providing quality materials with integrity has resonated with customers, and they’ve nearly doubled their market share in engineered wood products and distribution services since 2008. They believe their employees, which include 6,500 throughout the organization, are their most valuable asset. So, they’ve created an environment where decisions are made as close to the actual need as possible and employees are empowered.
