Max Heller

Max Heller Trader

Grew up and lived in Northern California until 2015. I spent alot of time outdoors, on the river or at the coast with family and friends. I moved to Bend almost 5yrs ago to begin my lumber trading career. I have built my business around supplying some of the largest pro yards and truss plants in the Intermountain region. I pride myself in my ability to source and sell dimension lumber, studs, and truss material over such a large area, and in multiple species. Im excited to get to continue in the industry and grow with Utah Lumber.
