Graded For Yield®
Our Contribution to Your Bottom Line

At Northwest Hardwoods, we operate 17 manufacturing locations, including mills, concentration yards, and re-manufacturing plants. We have 11 warehousing and distribution points strategically located throughout the United States. It’s all part of our continued commitment to making your hardwood supply chain as flexible as possible.

Double-cut bandmills and laser-guided scanning technology improve the yield of each log. The latest in kiln equipment, combined with our management and monitoring of the drying process, minimizes the number of defective boards and guarantees more consistency in moisture content. We grade after drying and surfacing to better account for defects.  Our custom grading process is designed to help customers increase their profit margins.  We offer lumber grades that are application specific to help customers minimize waste in their production process.
