Siwek Lumber & Millwork

Siwek Lumber & Millwork has roots that stem all the way back to 1933. In the depths of the Great Depression, the young Siwek family struggled to keep their burgeoning business alive as unemployment soared and jobs became increasingly scarce. Fast forward more than 80 years, and Siwek Lumber is now run by the founders’ grandson, Tom Siwek, and has expanded its millwork and hardware offerings to serve not only Northeast Minneapolis, but the entire state of Minnesota as well.

Tom is the company’s Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and General Manager and has worked for Siwek Lumber since 1985. The company is now known for their expert remodeling, pole buildings, millwork, hardwood, crating and packaging of lumber, and their unique selection of closeout and surplus items.

Siwek Lumber is headquarted at 2536 Marshall St. NE with a second location at 350 Valley View Dr. in Jordan, MN. “Our location is the heart of our customer base,” says Tom. “It is representative of our business model – creative, vibrant, unique, hardworking, progressive, modern and yet historic.”

Siwek Lumber actively participates in community service through the East Minneapolis Exchange Club, and Tom is a longtime Northeast resident and activist. When he’s not at the lumberyard, Tom can be found at some of his favorite Northeast establishments including Jax CafĂ©, The Mill Northeast, Stanley’s Northeast Bar Room, Elsie’s Restaurant, Bar and Bowling Center, and The Anchor Fish and Chips.
