Company History

Econ-O-Fab Buildings is a family-owned and family-operated pole building business that was started in 1973 by Tom Woods, Sr and his wife, Dolores, in Beaverton, Oregon.

Tom Sr. worked hard building the foundation of the business along with his son ,Tom Jr., who took over the family business in 1985 along with his wife, Heather Woods. In 1988, Tom Sr. and Dolores officially retired from the family business.

Tom Jr's son, JT Woods, started working for Econ-O-Fab and learned the trade during his high school summer breaks. JT went on to earn his Bachelor Degree in Operations Management at Oregon Tech and his Associates Degree in Construction Management at PCC, and in 2004 began his full-time career working for the family business. 

In 2015, JT's wife, Nikki Woods, started working full-time for Econ-O-Fab as the Marketing Manager as her background and degree is in Business Marketing, which she earned at Oregon State University. 

In 2019, Econ-O-Fab moved it's location to Forest Grove, Oregon where it is currently being ran under the leadership of the third generation. JT & Nikki appreciate all of the hard work that Tom Sr, Dolores, Tom Jr, and Heather have put in over the years building up the family business and they look foward to continuing it's legacy.
