WHAT MAKES ASSOCIATED HARDWOODS DIFFERENT?

WHAT MAKES ASSOCIATED HARDWOODS DIFFERENT?

We have over 40 acres of yard space for air drying at our Granite Falls, North Carolina Facility - that means we can hold over 18 million board feet of lumber on our concentration yard.

Our NHLA-Trained Purchasing Team, with a total of 45 years of experience, goes from sawmill to sawmill throughout the Appalachians and the entire Eastern United States to make sure we buy the best lumber available.

Five NHLA-Trained Lumber Graders examine and grade each board to ensure that you get the quality of lumber you ordered.

New, computer-controlled kilns ensure slow, gentle drying for superior lumber quality. Automatic monitoring eliminates wide swings in kiln temperature and eliminates drying-related defects.
