Peter Ward

Meet Peter Ward

It is safe to say that Peter Ward is a true visionary. It is this very quality that propelled him toward an innovative solution when he needed to grow the truss end of his business, Drouin West Timber and Truss in Australia. His international search for truss equipment lead him to more than just answers. A true partnership, born from innovation, Wood Truss Systems was with Peter through every step of the journey. The year was 2007; Peter sold his sawmilling business in order to focus on building trusses. He realized that in order to achieve this growth, he would need to invest in some good equipment, which led him to Wood Truss Systems’ (WTS) web site. “I found Jay to be very helpful and provided me a contact point in America to find the equipment I was looking for and also introductions to other people.”

Peter wanted to retrofit a table with an Alpine auto-jigging system.  “I thought I was nuked,” Peter recalls from his realization that the table that was listed for sale on the WTS website was not suitable. After some correspondence with Peter, Jay began to look around for other compatible tables. “The line that WTS sold us actually enabled us to grow substantially. That ignited my passion to expand the truss and frame business. That was our first scenario: We had to quickly grow to cover the costs of extracting the business.”

Meet Casey Collum

Casey Collum knows a vendor relationship going on 20 years is rare. It started in 1999 when he and his father opened Empire Truss. “I started working with Wood Truss Systems because of Jim [Mavrakes]. He was one of the first people who stopped by. So I like to say wherever he goes is where I go,” he laughs.

Dick Fennell

Meet Dick Fennell

When Dick Fennell left his Ontario, Canada truss shop to start fresh in Wyoming, there was no doubt he would retain Wood Truss Systems as an equipment supplier. In fact, he credits Jay Halteman with the idea of setting up in the U.S. West. “Jay is the reason I’m here!” he said, explaining Jay knew of a shop for sale and suggested Dick make an offer in 2006. In the end Dick bought land and built his company from the ground up, but Jay helped influence the decision like only a true partner would.
