  • Risk Management

Our trade partners trust us deeply as their wood supplier, and we take that responsibility very seriously at Olympic Industries. We go to great lengths to protect our customers from risks. That's why we've put together a skilled team dedicated to trading derivatives on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. This team works tirelessly to serve our clients, helping us manage prices to minimize potential losses for both our customers and lumber mills.

By using Futures to set prices, our lumber partners can feel confident that there won't be any surprises in store for them in the future. Armed with this assurance, they can plan their upcoming lumber projects more accurately, ensuring timely delivery while maximizing profits.

Olympic Industries has earned a solid reputation as a wood supplier through decades of honest and transparent dealings with our long-term partners. Our customers and lumber mills come back to us year after year because they trust that their investments are safe with us, a trust we've consistently proven. These enduring, collaborative relationships form the cornerstone of our wood distribution business, and they're all built on a foundation of trust.
