Dedicated Leaders and Staff
As a customer service company that just happens to sell lumber, we pride ourselves on having expert, knowledgeable people answering the phones and taking orders. We really know our customers’ business and what you need. In fact, our salespeople have owned their own shops, which is why they have the title: Wood Product & Manufacturing Experts. This fancy title really just means that they know their stuff and how important it is to get you what you want, when you want it.

Megan joined the ILP office staff in 2016, and although her title says “Finance” she has knowledge in all areas of our business. She is here to help you with any questions about your account and also keeps the office running smoothly.
Ryan started out in the yard pulling lumber orders in early 2018, and moved onto the City Desk in September 2019. As the “young guy” in the office, Ryan keeps us on our toes and attempts to keep us connected to all that digital technology stuff.
Nelly joined the ILP team in August of 2020. Hailing from Fargo, ND, Nelly brings with her a strong customer service background and a fresh energy to the office. She’s learned a lot about lumber & plywood since she started, and is grateful to have had time with veteran City Desker, Randy, to learn the ropes!

Stacey has been a part of the ILP team since 2007. After a two year adventure of homeschooling her youngest daughter, Stacey returned to full time in the fall of 2017. If you have a question about your account or an order, Stacey can get you the answer or connect you to the person who can help you!

These guys are serious about their lumber. They are a key part of the crew that gets you milled lumber next day. And it’s not only next day, it’s the best lumber in town. Each order is hand-picked, measured, inspected, and only leaves our yard after it meets our ILP specs which often exceed NHLA inspection rules. No one else does it – that’s why we call it an ILP Exclusive!
It’s a bold claim, but it’s safe to say, we have the best group of drivers in the business. They are often times the face of our company, and we’re happy to have these faces working for us! ILP’s veteran drivers go beyond just delivering our product to you next day, they establish relationships. We hope you are experiencing this ILP difference and thank you for filling up our trucks each day!
