Despite the economic impact of COVID-19, all has not been bleak. Although slightly more than half the participants in this year’s WOOD 100 said they didn’t anticipate 2020 sales to surpass those of 2019, the vast majority (69%),  anticipate “good” or even “excellent” sales for their companies this year.  Projections for 2020 are also positive, with 87% of respondents predicting “good” or “excellent” sales results.

As with past years, the economy and employee recruitment/retention rank as the top concerns by North American wood products companies, followed by employee skills and profit margins.
