Industry News: Capital Forest Products Now a 100% Employee-Owned Company
A new beginning to strengthen company culture and Capital Forest’s commitment of top-notch service to stakeholders
ANNAPOLIS, MD – October 1, 2021 – Capital Forest Products announces the finalization of its transition to a 100 percent employee-owned company, effective today. Implementing an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) grants company shares to each of its present and future employees and provides a positive organizational shift to strengthen Capital Forest’s core values and commitment to its stakeholders.
The transition to employee ownership will ensure longevity for the company and will place in the hands of its employees the continuation of a 40-year legacy of exceptional service and commitment to its customers, vendor partners, and employees.
The company’s shareholder employees, newly appointed board of directors, and Founder and President Michael Tichenor plan to maintain much of same structure and day-to-day operations that have made Capital what has been for decades, but with a reinvigorated passion and vested common interest in the future success and profitability of the company.
