At Dakeryn Industries, we take great pride in the relationships we have together cultivated with our suppliers, customers and employees. We firmly believe that treating everyone with dignity, respect and integrity is the key to those relationships and by doing so, our business will continue to grow and be successful.
Our major corporate strength is our people. Our traders average over 25 years in the industry and have extensive experience in the marketing and distribution of both dimension lumber and re-manufactured products such as decking and fascia. Our support staff are all dedicated, efficient, long-term employees who understand the nuances of the business to ensure everything flows smoothly behind the scenes.
Finally, while Dakeryn is privately owned, all six partners are engaged in day-to-day trading which ensures our suppliers and customers have access to the key decision makers in the organization. These factors all come together to enable us to quickly adapt to the ever-changing needs of our customers and the dynamic global market.
Our business model is simple. Find a way to give our customers what they need, when they need it, at a competitive price.
Over the past 25 years, Dakeryn Industries has grown to become an industry leader in today’s ever-changing world of lumber marketing.
Ted Coe and Dave Wardle Sr. started Dakeryn Industries in 1991. The addition of current President Rob Chimko in 1994 would set the company’s course in motion. As Ted and Dave began to ponder retirement, Ray Stewart, Dave Wardle Jr., Chris Sainas, and Brad Taylor became partners. With each individual came a broader industry perspective.
The company acquired Mountain View Specialty Products in 2004 and Westmark Products in 2006.
Brett Johnson expanded distribution channels and export markets upon joining Dakeryn in 2007. Brett became a partner in 2012.
