The history

In March of 1952, John Koppenol and Ken Holtvluwer joined together to create Standale Lumber and Supply Company. Ken went to his father and asked for a loan to pay for his share of the company, when he explained to his father that he actually didn’t know anything about the lumber and building industry, but “I can sure learn!” he exclaimed. Only two years later, Ken had learned enough to triple the business and buy out his business partner, becoming sole owner and operator of Standale Lumber Supply Company.

Ken Holtvluwer’s fervor fueled the company through decades of natural disasters, climbing interest rates, and industry shifts. He remained focused on his family of employees and the heartbeat of the company—supplying the best products and superior customer service—which led to a long-standing reputation and rapport that builders in Western Michigan know and believe in today, more than 70 years later.

Now a part of Ambassador Supply, the Standale family carry on his legacy and the good name of Standale Lumber to this day.
