Western Building Products is a 100% employee-owned company operating in Milwaukee, WI. For over 60 years we have been a wholesale distributor of millwork products. We feel that our success is due to our owners…each and every one of our employees.
Our product lines include interior doors, exterior doors, windows, mouldings, stairparts, columns, porch posts and more. We distribute to more than 400 dealers in the upper Midwest including Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana. Our goal is to deliver the best quality product at the best price.
We are the dominant leader in our geographic market, and as our competition has fallen by the wayside during this economic recession, we have increased our market share. We strive to be good stewards of our environment, whether its in our products or how we use our lighting in our warehouse.
Our last makeover was in 1991 and our color scheme and logo reflect that. (our current colors are PMS 208 and PMS 429 (burgundy and gray) It is time to bring the look of our vibrant and dynamic company into the 21st century, and bring some excitement to our market. Here is our website: http://www.western1.com
