Our foundation in the wood products industry began in 1945 as a producer of Southern Yellow Pine lumber in High Point, NC.
In the late 1960s, we shifted our core business to become an importer and distributor of Genuine Mahogany lumber to service the expanding furniture industry of North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee.
During the 1980s, the company became part of an international wood trading business based in London with procurement offices across the globe. We continued to distribute tropical hardwood lumber to the furniture industry and began importing and selling tropical hardwood plywood. Our customer base consisted of wholesale building supply distributors, lumber yards, national retailers, and manufacturers throughout North America and the Caribbean.
By the mid 2000s, it became clear that much of the world's supply of tropical hardwood products was being depleted far too quickly due to short-term forest management practices that were mainly the result of complex political, social, and economic conditions in the source countries.
As a business with both financial and ethical goals, we felt strongly that if we were going to continue in our industry, we had to become promoters of wood products from sustainable sources. It was both socially responsible and long-term commercially the right thing to do.
Today, we are a privately held US-based company that prides itself in developing innovative panel products from sustainable wood sources that bring outstanding value to our customers through our Patriot Timber Family of Panel Products.
We offer exceptional responsiveness, knowledge, and service from a management team that has over 150 years of experience in the wood industry. We operate our own manufacturing facility at source to ensure excellent product control with the most up-to-date information available. Our pride is showing. Revolutionary business values backed by an unmatched commitment to delivering innovative quality wood products from sustainable wood sources - that's Patriot Timber Products.
