Success Story: Wildwoods Manufacturing

     “I was fortunate to be introduced to WBD’s services through our local community credit union. Working together, we were able to put together a financial portfolio/plan that prepared our business for the next phase of growth. Their knowledge and expertise helped me wrap my head around where we were at, what we would need to do going forward, and how best to accomplish that. In just a short period of time after completing our first successful funding package, our bottom line has increased almost 50%! Very thankful for the time/energy of all involved!”

     – Ryan Hexum, President/Owner

Wildwoods Manufacturing is a high-end, full service furniture manufacturing company located in the heart of timber country in Hayward, Wisconsin. Offering urban rustic, lodge living, and cabin lifestyle items, the rustic elegance of each piece made by Wildwoods Manufacturing reflects the natural patterns and grains of the woods used to make them. From bedframes and nightstands to dining sets, end tables, coffee tables, cabinets, and buffets found in homes and commercial
businesses and restaurants, Wildwoods Manufacturing uses a refined process to craft high quality pieces. They even create items using reclaimed barnwood.

Ryan Hexum, owner of Wildwoods Manufacturing, bought a home for Wildwoods in 2013. Utilizing an SBA 504 refinance loan provided by WBD and financing from Hayward Community Credit Union, Ryan was able to refinance the debt he acquired in purchasing the real estate the company that he operates out of. The refinance provides Ryan with a long-term fixed rate and additional working capital. It also adds three new jobs to the Hayward community.
