Hilltop Lumber History

We treat people the way we would want to be treated.

Hilltop Lumber – We Help Plan, Supply and Deliver Dreams!

Hilltop Lumber is a family-owned business that started in Glenwood in 1988 with five employees, three trucks and one forklift. Since that time Hilltop Lumber has expanded to include more than 85 employees and four locations: Alexandria, Glenwood, Ottertail and Park Rapids. The company also operates Hilltop Rental Center located in the Alexandria store. According to owner Paul Klimek, Hilltop Lumber’s founders started with a vision of creating a company that served its customers and treated them the way they would want to be treated if they were remodeling or building a new home.

“Our objective, at Hilltop, is to develop a relationship with the contractor or homeowner where we are viewed as a partner in their project,” Paul noted. “At Hilltop Lumber, our goal is to provide quality products with excellent service at a fair price.”

Hilltop Lumber has been recognized for excellence by the Northwestern Lumber Association and Do It Best, a member-owned distributor of hardware and building materials. In 2018 Hilltop Lumber was selected as the recipient of the 2018 Business and Industrial Appreciation Day (BIAD*) Award by the Directors of the Alexandria Area Economic Development Commission and Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce.
