Brothers Bob and Junior Post started Post Hardwoods in 1980.
From day one, Bob and Junior Post have been producing the finest quality hardwood and providing the best service to customers around the globe.
The brothers built Post Hardwoods on integrity, quality, and a desire to follow the science and craft of forestry. Post became one of the premier logging companies in Michigan by managing, using, conserving, and repairing forests, woodlands, and associated resources for human and environmental benefits.
Bob’s early beginnings in the hardwood industry started in 1972. As a young man, he established a logging business that would prove to be a key ingredient in gaining knowledge of the hardwood industry. He also gained the ability to recognize quality logs and timber, which remains vital to the company today.
Bob and his wife Melanie have a large and very active family which they enjoy spending as much time with as possible. Bob also enjoys hunting and fishing around the globe, as well as playing with the grandkids.
When looking to the future in his senior year of high school, Junior & his older brother, Bob, began discussing the possibility of starting their own sawmill. Junior had been working part-time at an implement dealership while still in school, as well as taking courses in diesel mechanics. Since he had always enjoyed toying with mechanical things, being involved in the production aspect of the mill was a natural fit.
As time went on, more and more pieces were added to the original mill. Finding just the right machinery and training people to run the new equipment became an important part of the mill’s success. Along the way, one of Junior’s personal goals was understanding how each piece of equipment could run its best, often running various machines himself.
Today, making the best use of resources is one of his top priorities. He enjoys brainstorming new, often unconventional ideas to obtain the best yield from both the logs and the machinery while encouraging other company members to do the same.
In his spare time, Junior enjoys spoiling his grandson and touring Michigan on bikes with his wife, Londa. He also likes to tinker on “anything with a motor,” which has lead to exploring the midwest on ATVs.
