"We're extremely pleased to have this relationship and we're looking forward to the mutual growth we expect will come from it."

The company is a wholesaler and distributor offering one of the largest inventories in the Southeast of specialty hardwoods and related products. It specializes in serving the needs of building products distributors, millwork and cabinet manufacturers, architects and designers, architectural woodworkers and other manufacturers.
