A Family with Dedication and Innovative Spirit
Ron Wrightman made his start in the log and timber home industry in 1979, founding his first successful log and timber home company, which is still in operation today. Ron’s son, Rob, managed the original plant while acquiring his carpenter’s papers. After the sale of the initial company, Rob worked with the new owners, teaching them how to operate the plant and then spent the following year building homes on their behalf. Rob then moved on to attain his real estate license and after a highly successful five years of selling cottage properties, approached his father Ron with a plan to re-enter the log and timber home industry.
In 1986 the father and son team co-founded True North Log Homes. After ten years, Rob assumed control of the company when his father retired.
As C.E.O., Rob is busy taking True North Log Homes from a family-run business to a reputable international company. He oversees a proficient management team that takes responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the company. Over the past 20 years, True North has grown from a small group of dedicated staff members to an employee group of close to 50 people, who share the Wrightmans’ passion for the True North quality. True North’s relentless quest for improvement continues today, with the launch of a new product that will further enhance the performance of the True North technology. The patent-pending, “Thermo Groove™ Six-Seal System” is another industry first and an example of the kind of research and creativity that keeps True North at the forefront among log and timber home buyers.
