What makes O'Neill Pine Company special?
We are a family first company. Our company has deep roots
as a family owned business. The family patriarch, Robert Harold
O'Neill, felt strongly that owning one's own business was the best
form of employment. He shared ownership of the company,
Hemphill-O'Neill, Inc., freely with
family members. His son, Robert Hugh O'Neill, continued that
legacy and O'Neill Pine Company, OPC, was born of a continuing effort to
perpetuate the family business forever. OPC has twice been
recognized as the small business in Oregon with the most family-friendly policies and practices.
We avoid family business pitfalls. There is a clear separation
of family love and family business, of company ownership and company
employment. We clearly communicate expectations
and opportunities and value employment of family members inside and
outside of our company.
Our business works with well-defined partnerships.
Controlling interest owner, Debra O'Neill Pine, is the Board Chair
and Corporate Secretary overseeing the company while Richard Pine is
the President. Financial
Products & Services, Inc. (real estate and industrial site
management), Northwind Forest Consultants, LLC (forest management), and Evergreen
Charitable Trust (charitable endowments and anonymous giving
programs) are other trusted partners that come together to help OPC accomplish
We make a substantial
investment in social capital. Ten percent of paid work time is
dedicated to approved civic or charitable activities. Ten
percent of our net income supports Evergreen Charitable Trust.
We annually provide substantial grants in memory of Robert Harold
O'Neill. We have been recognized for our community
contributions and are involved corporate citizens in the
areas where we live and do business.
There is more to life than making money! We have values
that are more important than profits. We work to honor
