      Welcome to Central Wisconsin Lumber, Inc.

      In Business Since 1979

      Central Wisconsin Lumber, Inc. is owned & operated by a 4th generation lumber & logging family.  Richard Kersten II, President & Owner, built this new facility in 2003.  This new band mill was designed with the most modern technology and replaced an old circle mill. As one of the most modern facilities in the Great Lakes Region, it took nearly two years to plan & build.  Our mill was built to stay competitive into the future by producing top quality hardwood lumber as efficiently as possible.
