Advancing the Digital Future of the LBM Supply Chain

Yesler was formed to bring new technology to the LBM supply chain. The supply chain for lumber and building materials is complex and fragmented, and very little technology has been employed to help buyers and sellers perform their roles more efficiently to save time and increase profit. Until now, technology in LBM has been one-sided, either a buyer’s ERP system or a seller’s digital portal. Yesler changes that, creating a common platform for all buyers and sellers that still places relationships first and makes the supply chain more efficient.

Yesler: Where We Came From

In 2017, Matt Meyers had spent more than 21 years in the lumber industry in a wide breadth of roles, moving up through product engineering and development, quality assurance, marketing, sales, and eventually resulting in managing sales, marketing, and supply chain for one of the largest LBM manufacturers in the country. With this depth of experience, Matt saw that there were big opportunities to improve the industry’s supply chain, helping all parts of the value chain be better informed, communicate constructively, and become more efficient.

After spending a couple of years thinking and planning, Matt launched Yesler Solutions in 2019, bringing together a team of LBM professionals with software product development and technology startup experts to bring the vision to reality.
