BELGRADE — Hammond Lumber Company was recently named as one of the 2021 Best Places to Work in Maine. This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Maine, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses.

“We are honored to receive this designation and we would like to congratulate the Hammond Team — each of our 820 employees across 21 locations — for the achievement of this award,” said Mike Hammond, president and CEO of Hammond Lumber Company. “The Hammond Team consists of employees who consistently provide exceptional customer service, demonstrate remarkable teamwork and collaboration, and serve our communities daily. We believe our employees have set the foundation for what makes Hammond Lumber Company a ‘best place to work’ through their dedication and daily commitment. We could not have achieved this award without each of our employees.”

Hammond Lumber Company will be recognized in the Oct. 18 edition of Mainebiz where the rankings will be revealed for the first time, following a planned awards event. The Best Places to Work in Maine awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Society for Human Resource Management – Maine State Council and Best Companies Group.
