100 years of quality service
Wood Lumber Company celebrates a century of quality on Cape Cod
When the Wood Lumber Company celebrates the anniversary of its founding this summer, the Miskell family will take pride in having run an extraordinarily successful local business for 100 years.
What third generation owners Dana and Eileen Miskell might be proudest of, however, is the praise that comes from its contractors, vendors and community.
“They have employed and continue to employ only quality people. They carry only quality products at a fair price. They always offer contractor support and stand behind what they sell,” said Mike Duffany of Duffany Builders, who has been a Wood Lumber customer for more than 35 years.
It is when the stories become personal that the integrity of the ownership becomes even more apparent. Michael Katon, Jigsaw Construction, a customer for at least 25 years, said, “When I first came to Falmouth to start a construction business I had little or no credit history. Bud Miskell (Dana’s father) gave me a line of credit when other lumber yards would not. I’ve never forgotten that.” Mr. Duffany added, “One of my fondest memories is when Bud offered to let me upgrade my own house to Andersen windows and pay for them over time. We would pay as much or little as we could afford each month. Nobody was ever that generous to me.”
Today, Wood Lumber Company continues to provide that quality service for contractors, vendors and the Cape Cod community. Read more for a full account of our company’s history.
Three generations strong
Dana represents the third generation of the Miskell family to own and manage Wood Lumber. After a career in the computer industry, Dana returned to Falmouth and Wood Lumber in 1986. He oversees the buying of all the lumber, roofing and millwork. With an eye toward quality products, Dana has maintained the standards required of our custom home builders and their customers.
A graduate of Dartmouth College, Dana enjoys the variety and challenges in running a building materials dealer.
