About Us

Paulson Wood Products (PWP) was established in 1986 by Don and Paula Paulson. They developed a reputation for producing well-manufactured lumber and maintaining a neat and orderly yard. In 2012, they sold the business to Bob and Sharon Cole.

Bob is the sawyer and mill manager at PWP. He has a lifetime of experience in lumber manufacturing and sales. He started as a lumber grader in his original family business, Cole Bros. Lumber in Woodbury, Connecticut. After 30 years, he sold Cole Bros. to his cousin Walter. Bob then moved to Vermont, where he worked for a flooring manufacturer and Sheehan and Sons Lumber.

Matt Cole joined PWP in 2016 to assist with sales and all things technical. Sharon is office manager.
