“After 86 years of continuous family ownership, we are happy to have found another business that shares our history and values to continue our legacy in western Massachusetts,” said Mike Boilard, president, Boilard Lumber. “It was important to us to turn the reins over to people who are as committed as we have been to both our customers and employees.
