This is Bloedorn
A Tradition of Quality & Excellence since 1919
Serving Our Communities for Over 100 Years
From our humble beginnings over 100 years ago, Bloedorn Lumber Company has set a tradition of quality and excellence in building materials and home improvement needs with 425 associates, 22 retail stores, 3 truss-manufacturing plants, and 1 door-manufacturing plant located throughout Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, and Colorado.
We remain committed to our founding principles and long-term growth.
People are the Core of Our Business
At Bloedorn Lumber, we believe that the essence of your legacy can be found not only in the things you build and leave behind, but through the relationships you create along the way. People are at the core of our business, which is why we believe in such things as empowering our employee-owners through transparency and trust, continuing to honor the significance of a handshake, and offering only the best in building products and services for our families and friends as they build the foundations of our communities for years to come.
Our core values
We believe in ownership from start to finish. Every Bloedorn Lumber employee is an owner of our company, allowing each and every one of us to be accountable for the decisions we make while conducting business. Our employees are empowered to make decisions and to solve problems, frequently exceeding expectations and becoming thoroughly invested in the businesses and the individuals we serve—and the many relationships we develop along the way. Employee-ownership also means that we make decisions for the many and not just for ourselves. Our fiduciary duty is to our employee-owners and our customers as we continue working towards our very best.
As we’ve grown, we’ve continued to live out those same principles each and every day. At the heart of entrepreneurship is a competitive spirit—embodied by people who love to win (and hate to lose). We represent employees and customers alike who take on the challenge ahead of them and aren’t satisfied with the status quo. We find ways to improve, ways to say “yes” instead of “no”, and ways to solve any and all problems we might encounter along the way. We approach each day with a desire to be the very best, and we embody the entrepreneurial mindset through the relationships we build with employees and customers alike.
Our foundation was built on the value of a handshake. We believe all aspects of business should be conducted with honesty and integrity, where people choose to engage in a mutual exchange of trust to accomplish a task or to enter into an endeavor with one another. This timeless tradition of confidence and faith is rooted in the same small towns where Bloedorn Lumber came to be and where we still exist today.

Bloedorn Through the Years
Bloedorn Lumber Established
The Torrington Lumber & Coal Company was incorporated on April 21, 1919 by Charles, Alvin, and Howard Bloedorn, along with their brother-in-law, B.J. Hilsabeck. Although the original incorporators were Charles, Alvin, and Howard, the other brothers John and Walter joined as stockholders. From 1919-1952, the company continued expansion into larger towns, cities, and states.
An official corporate office was constructed.
The company entered into the truss-manufacturing and rental-equipment business.
The corporate office moved into a newly remodeled location in Torrington.
