TYR is a privately-held corporation headquartered in Portland, Ore. We have three lines of business: Wood Products (specialized exporter, domestic distributor and wholesaler of North American hardwood lumber); Food (conventional and organic beans, lentils and grains to industrial accounts in North America, South America, Asia and Europe); and Feed (imported and domestic organic grains to North American feed mills, dairies and co-ops).

We have a wonderful open office environment in downtown Portland, blocks from the MAX and bus lines. We’re proud of our fun, dynamic, respectful and professional team of co-workers. We start early, but we’re off by 3:30pm Monday-Thursday and work half days on Fridays.

We’re self-financed and have a strong balance sheet.
