The Family Business Alliance is focused on local family businesses. Diana Schad from the Alliance spoke with our president and CEO Mike Dykstra. Please listen to the audio interview below to learn more about the humble beginnings and growth of Zeeland Lumber.
This week kicks off the first in a series of member spotlight podcasts! The second week of each month we will be profiling one of our member companies. This week features Mike Dykstra, the CEO of Zeeland Lumber, a fourth-generation family business that started in WWII selling ration boxes and wooden pallets. Mike married into the Vanden Bosch family and started working for the company in 1994. Please listen as he takes us through the family history, the company’s commitment to the community, and a tornado that destroyed the company’s Wyoming facility in 2014 but opened up new opportunities with it.
