Pioneer Millworks: 100% Employee Owned

Pioneer Millworks operates on the triple bottom line—a simple belief that People, Planet, and Prosperity work together to ensure a better future. Our coworkers are more than just employees, they’re part of what makes our company successful.

At Pioneer Millworks every individual has an ownership mentality because we are 100% Employee-Owned as an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Being Employee-Owned means every employee has a vested interest in the profitability of the company, the cultural values we represent, and the quality work we do.

Accordingly, we offer our team flexibility, competitive compensation, and a comprehensive benefits package that includes the largest wealth building tool an employer can provide—an employee stock ownership plan.

100% Employee-Owned

In 2018 we started our transition from single ownership of our founder Jonathan Orpin, and in 2022 became a 100% employee-owned company as an ESOP, one of about 8,000 ESOP businesses in the country.

An ESOP (or Employee Stock Ownership Plan) is an employee benefit plan that enables coworkers as a group to own interest in part, or all, of a business in the form of shares of stock. It is also a type of Trust that acts as a retirement plan, similar to a 401K, by investing in company stock and holding its assets in the Trust for employee-owners, at no cost to those employee-owners, that also increases employee retention long term.

Having long operated on the triple bottom line—a simple belief that people, planet, and profit work together to ensure a better future, the Pioneer Millworks transition to employee-ownership is intended to ensure the environmental and social commitments the business was founded on 30+ years ago continue far into the future.
