General Information: Lincoln Wood Products was founded in 1947 by Carl and Jane Bierman. Based in Merrill, Wis., the privately owned company manufactures wood windows and patio doors for new construction, remodeling and light commercial projects. In 1994, the Biermans formed a sister company, Timeline Vinyl Products to offer an upscale vinyl window and patio door product line. The two companies occupy four plants totaling over 500,000 square feet of manufacturing space, marketing its products through a network of over 400 independent distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada. Last year brought challenges and heartbreak to the company in the form of a tornado heavily damaging the main corporate offices and final assembly plant and the passing of Jane Bierman. Recovery from both was attributed to the strong foundation the Biermans established over the past 65 years and the dedicated work ethic of all the employees, and the company is stronger and more focused in part to the challenges overcome in the past year, officials report.

After getting struck by a tornado in April, Lincoln rebuilt
the facility housing its corporate offices and final
assembly operations, holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony
in August.
