Our Team

Since day one, the main goal of Durgin and Crowell has been to invest in great people, equipment and technology. This has paid off. Not only has that innovative vision helped the company to grow in size from 6 employees to close to 100, but it has earned Durgin and Crowell a reputation of being one of the top Eastern White Pine lumber producers in the Northeast. Our team is experienced, knowledgeable and hard working. Get to know them for yourself…
