“We have to pool our buying power, we have to be competitive, and we have to do it for our future generations, for our children.”  Fifty-year industry veteran and former President of GNH Lumber, Stanley Randall Ingalls, was lucky enough to be in the room when our forefathers formed ENAP in 1967.  Listen to Stan speak about this powerful moment in the history of our cooperative.
