MCCLEARY, Wash., September 5, 2012 — From its humble beginnings as a door and plywood manufacturer in the forestland of the Pacific Northwest to its prominence as an industry-leading door manufacturer a century later, Simpson Door Company's success today and throughout its history is a result of an experienced and talented workforce. It is this group of past and present employees whom Simpson chose to honor at its 100-year celebration this summer.

"100 years in business is a remarkable milestone, and an achievement every Simpson employee over the past century has helped us reach," said Stacie Conkle, Simpson Door Company general manager. "Our people helped Simpson weather market downturns and adapt to changes in the building industry. Their hard work and dedication made this landmark occasion possible."

Since 1912, many generations of families have devoted their lives to creating beautiful, handcrafted Simpson stile and rail, interior, exterior and custom wood doors. In recognition of their work and its centennial anniversary, Simpson hosted a celebration at its McCleary, Washington, facility for current and retired employees, their families and community members.
