Arnie Jarmak

President, CEO

“It was over twenty years ago when I had a vision. I was working with the Amish in Pennsylvania, and I noticed how they saved EVERYTHING when tearing down their buildings. This concept was foreign to the building industry at the time, but to me it made all the sense in the world. So I brought this idea back to the Boston building scene with me in the early 90’s.

Since then, we have saved tens of  millions of board feet of vintage, historic reclaimed lumber. We’ve ensured the legacy of this beautiful old wood continues on for generations to come. Reclaiming wood is not just our job, it’s our way of life.” 

J Heasley

Shop Manager/Project Consultant

“As a lifelong New Englander, I was always surrounded by a rich colonial history. This came in a large part from my parents. My mother was an interior designer who embraced the Colonial design of New England. My Dad was obsessed with the history of the region. In addition, he instilled the importance of conservation.

When I wanted to completely change my career direction, I asked myself what could I do to fulfill my love for the region, furniture and recycling. I’m very lucky to be doing what I love. Most people don’t have that chance.”

Junior has been with our company since the beginning. His teams work diligently to bring our precious wood home, safe and sound. As one of our original employees, Junior has developed strong relationships with many of our clients, demolition contractors and developers alike.

He always has a smile on his face, and a joke in his back pocket. But don’t let his wit and charm fool you, he is the hardest working man on our team, and puts in long hours each day just to make sure we maintain the highest quality reclaimed wood products in our inventory.
