Bruce has been involved in all facets of the lumber industry since 1976, focusing on value added and remanufactured products. Spanning 40 years in the industry, he has remained focused on products and programs that often times are unique to a customer or industry and require the volume and work ethic to deliver highly specified tallies of custom graded products on time as promised. He credits his success to all the support he has enjoyed from management, skilled production, personal, and office admistration he has worked with over that span of time.
He and his wife Pam have lived in the Portland area for 30 years enjoying all that the city and the access to outdoor recreation abundant in Oregon have to offer. They enjoy theater, music, skiing, walking, gardening, and an occasional glass of wine. They also enjoy time with their two children and their families. A recent purchase of a cabin in Idaho has provided a place they can all gather together.
