History of Starwood Rafters
Starwood Rafters was founded in 1964 as a manufacturer of laminated arch rafters and beams. It started out in Independence, Wisconsin as a three-man operation, with the original owners, Joseph Wozney and his two partners, working nights after working at their regular jobs. They shipped mainly to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and the Dakotas.
In the early 1970's, they developed the Lam-Ply Truss. It combines plywood, glu-lams and dimensional lumber to make a truss that is stronger than a conventional web truss. This allows the builder to space them further apart to reduce erection time and labor costs. This design also limits bird nesting and improves ventilation in livestock facilities.
The Lam-Ply Truss can span up to 72 feet and is used in many applications, from machinery storage to livestock facilities, to horse arenas. It also has been developed with a gambrel-style and a mono-slope design.
Starwood Rafters also supplies custom built specialty products, such as Solid Timbers & Timber Trusses, Decorative Laminated Beams, Laminated Decking, and Laminated Columns.
Today, Starwood Rafters is still in Independence, Wisconsin and is operated by Corey Wozney and Steve Wozney, Joseph's sons, and Randy Sluga, their brother-in-law. Starwood has their own fleet of trucks and will ship to your job site anywhere in the United States.
