Kenneth Poland

Founder & President, The Poland Corporation

Kenneth Poland grew up in Woodstock, Maine and has spent his adult life in West Paris, Maine with his wife Sandra where they founded The Poland Corporation in 1974.  Kenneth started his business in logging and trucking with a company he called Poland’s Logging Corporation, which became The Poland Corporation, as the company grew and expanded.  In the 1980’s, The Poland Corporation was one of the first companies in the State of Maine to harvest and chip whole trees for biomass. Over the years, The Poland Corporation has continued to grow and expand with the times, and today is a site development and excavation company as well as a supplier of materials and firewood. Kenneth has accumulated a multitude of experience throughout his career that includes founding and operating Poland’s Logging Corporation and The Poland Corporation, buying and selling real estate, developing land and properties for residential and commercial purposes and developing and building tower sites. Kenneth is well known in Maine and prides himself for his quality of work, professionalism, reliability and his

honesty. Today, Kenneth still is active in The Poland Corporation as President of the company.  He may deliver your load of materials or firewood personally.  He takes calls daily from those looking for estimates and to discuss projects and meets with many who are looking to hire The Poland Corporation for its site development and excavation services.

Kenneth loves to buy and sell land and properties.  He very actively buys and sells land and properties that he may harvest the wood from, sub-divide into residential house lots, or develop into commercial lease properties.  He has a keen eye that is able to see the potential in a piece of land or existing property and understand what it could be and its full value and potential.
