Huffman & Wright Logging Co.

'Our employees are basically an extension of our family.'

When the pandemic hit, it left no industry unscathed—even those that fell under the essential business category like Huffman & Wright Logging Co. out of Canyonville.

“There were a lot of questions about what was going to happen,” says partner Butch Wright.

Fortunately, major operations, which include logging and forest road building, were able to continue for the family-owned company as they enacted required precautions, like face masks and extra cleaning. Wright is proud to say that all employees have maintained a steady paycheck through the pandemic.

“Our employees are basically an extension of our family,” he says. “We hope to keep them employed even when it’s hard.”
