A Company That Significantly Serves You

Why Join CFP

At Columbia Forest Products, we value each and every employee and the qualities they bring to the table. When you join our team, you’re joining a family that works together to solve problems and collaborates to make a difference in the community and the industry. We want you to grow and build a career with us — not just a job.


Shares The Success

Our victories are ours to share. That is why our company is an ESOP, Employee Stock Ownership — this means for every year of employment, you get stock in the company. 

Customer Service

We aim to offer significant service to our employees, our customers, our community and our natural resources. We go the extra mile to ensure proper care. 

Absolute Integrity

As the long-standing leader in environmental sustainability, we strive to consistently support other industries and people while taking pride in our work. 

We Are Family

You’re never just a number to us. We strive to build relationships with all of our employees to create connections deeper than a typical 9-5 job.

Throughout his career, Kevin's ability to build relationships and adapt to different roles has been instrumental, leading to his current position as National Accounts Manager. He emphasizes the importance of continuous learning and adaptation as the key to success in a changing industry while also cherishing family time outside of work.

I've learned that Columbia strives to empower employee/owners to continuously improve, so that each individual can advance on a personal level, which advances Columbia on the whole. The structure of the ESOP truly does provide for the ability for everyone to have an impact on the company's safety metrics, financial performance, quality customer service, and position us well as we head towards the future.

This company truly believes and invests in its people and will help you reach any goals you set for yourself. ESOP certainly sets us apart from other prospective employers in our area, and understanding the real value of that and that you are an owner in this company and can help shape and share our success is rare to find elsewhere.
