Wood, businessman in Columbia City, Indiana is a well known and respected
innovator and pacesetter. With the support of his two sons, John and Doug, the
three started the business. While his son, Dave, joined the company a few years
later. The Wood family grew 80/20 Inc. in Whitley County into a business with
over 300 employees in a 290,000 sq ft facility.
John Wood, retired for 12 years, was coaxed out of retirement in 2018 when he
learned he will be the face of the Wood Family funds. Generous unrestricted
funds were established in eleven counties that surround the home office of

of LaGrange Steuben, Noble, DeKalb, Kosciusko, Whitley, Allen, Wabash,
Huntington, Wells, and Adams will strive to uphold the reputation of the Wood
family and work to promote the generosity of the Wood Family Fund.
