Since 1958, Totem has been delivering top-notch service to the most demanding building contractors and construction companies, as well as the leading institutional, manufacturing and industrial accounts in the mid-west. Throughout that half century, Totem has continued to “raise the bar” by supporting our customers with the most professional and knowledgeable sales and service people in the business. Knowing what you need when you need it has earned Totem Lumber & Supply one of the highest ratings of customer service and satisfaction in the industry. Proudly, Totem is the Preferred Supplier of choice by the vast majority of our customer base. In most cases these customers have maintained active accounts with Totem for twenty years or more! And now, with our FSC® certification, Totem will continue to provide you with the most up-to-date product advice as the "green" movement sweeps the building and remodeling trades.
