How we do what we do

KWPA has a large goal of maintaining Pennsylvania’s rich history in the wood products industry for generations to come. We take logical and feasible steps to meet this goal. By staying active and visible in our community, we are changing people’s perspectives about the wood products industry and generating interest in career paths. By being supportive to our members, we are creating strong relationships with those who are already making the industry successful.
