With over 50 years in the millwork business, Woodgrain continues to build on its tradition of excellence as a market leader. What started as a small moulding mill in the small town of Cedar City, Utah has now grown to a multi-million dollar business with dozens of locations and over 5,000 associates. Woodgrain has grown to one the largest millwork companies in the world.
Woodgrain began and continues as a family-owned and operated company. Merrill "Bud" Dame started the small moulding company in Cedar City, Utah in 1954. He named his business Dame Moulding and Lumber Company.
In 1966, Bud Dame built his first manufacturing mill in Lakeview, Oregon from the ground up. In 1970, Woodgrain moved its corporate offices to Fruitland, Idaho where it is located today. Bud’s sons continue to run the business. Currently, Reed Dame is the President and CEO and Kelly Dame is the Executive Vice President. Today, members of the third generation are involved in various positions throughout the company.
Woodgrain Millwork, Inc., owns and operates a plantation forest in Chile, South America, where they employ sustainable forestry practices. Woodgrain places a strong focus on the optimal utilization of the earth’s valued natural resources.
