CHAMPLAIN HARDWOODS HISTORY
In 1995, Champlain Hardwoods realized that it was time to stop resisting the technology movement and reluctantly purchased its first computer, a major step because the company had done things "the old fashioned way." Champlain was then quicker to embrace the Internet, when it established a web presence in January of 2001. On the five year anniversary of the release of Champlain's original website, Champlain gave it a face-lift with the release of a new site in January of 2006.
Champlain Hardwoods has slowly but steadily grown, always at a rate that wouldn't interrupt its ability to service its customers. Champlain has adapted with the industry, offering FSC certified lumber to its customers in January of 2003, but the firm's mission statement has never changed. Champlain Hardwoods now has 9 employees, including a sales team that has just added its fourth member, and sells lumber throughout the United States and Canada. However, its way of doing business is very much the same as it was a quarter century ago.
