A local company was among those honored today by Gov. Paul LePage.

Lapointe Lumber Co., which employs about 30 people, was one of seven businesses that won the Governor’s Award for Business Excellence, according to the governor’s office. The 23rd annual awards were administered by the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development.

“It’s a true honor to have the opportunity every year to recognize Maine businesses that not only compete nationally and internationally, but that also help Maine keep its reputation for top-quality workmanship and innovation,” LePage said in a press statement.

Lapointe lumber started in 1947 with a saw mill and wood lot in Augusta and remains a family owned and operated lumber and building material retailer serving the professional contractor, builder, remodeler and retail public. It has locations in Augusta and Gardiner.
