Owner & President
Board of Directors

Founded in 1954, Lashway is now managed by its fourth generation of family entrepreneurs.  This depth of experience and commitment manifests in every aspect of our business.

Lashway Lumber  is able to do everything from start to finish on our own property. So in our way we are trying to help usher in a renaissance of American manufacturing. We are a custom sawmill where every order is custom sawed to specifications. Everything we do we do with ultra-precision and strict quality control.
What started out as a classic sawmill has flourished into a diverse wood products business still rooted in custom sawmill work but also includes a wide range of logging services and custom kiln drying. Our standards of customer service have never wavered; they’ve only deepened with time.
In 2005 Lashway Lumber expanded its business through a  sister company, Ponders Hollow (Westfield, MA) which specializes in moulding and flooring, continuing and extending the family’s dedication to wood-related products. Between Lashway Lumber and Ponders Hollow, our family of wood specialists provides you with a “soup to nuts” solution for all your lumber needs, from cutting down timber stands to selling refined finishing wood grades and everything in between.
