Meet The Owners

Tom Wilson

Master Forklift Operator, Receiver,
Customer Loader Extraordinaire - KLD Rapid City

Tom started with Knecht Lumber and Distribution in Rapid way back in 1996. His first stint with us ended after 7 years in 2003 when he decided to follow his passion for home building. In 2004 after roughly a year of this he decided to come back to his dream job at Knecht’s.

Over the years Tom has spent time working as a Customer Loader, Gunner and Stager, and has been successful in all of them. Several of his ideas along with his hard work and devotion have helped to sculpt KLD into what it is today. Currently Tom spends most of his time unloading trucks, stocking material, or doing whatever his company needs him to do. We are all very grateful for Tom’s stellar work ethic and his contributions to our company.

Tom has continued to follow his passion of homebuilding by helping to build homes for Habitat for Humanity. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing with his buddy Joe and riding his motorcycle.
