Manufacturers of Grade Hardwood Lumber
Hardwood Co., Inc. is a grade hardwood sawmill with a dry kiln facility.
The sawmill started in 1977 and the original dry kilns
were built in 1998 with additional dry kilns added in 2001.
Ontario Hardwood Co., Inc. looks forward to eventually moving the sawmill facility, currently in
Ontario, VA, adjacent to the dry kiln facility in the Charlotte County
Industrial Park, Keysville, VA.
Ontario Hardwood Co., Inc. purchases grade hardwood logs, both as
standing timber and gate logs, and saws those logs into green lumber which is
then sold or sent to the Ontario Hardwood Dry Kiln facility to be kiln dried for
future sales. Our major customers are
millwork operations, furniture and flooring operations throughout the eastern
Ontario Hardwood Co., Inc. uses computer guided lasers to saw logs on its
band headrig saw. The lumber then moves
through the rest of the sawmill operation on a custom designed carriage system.
Once the lumber reaches the green chain, it is sorted and hand packed according
to its final destination.
Upon arrival at the Ontario Hardwood Dry Kiln facility the green lumber is
sorted and stacked to be loaded into the steam kilns for drying. Once dried, the lumber is sorted and bundled
for shipment to our customers.
The Ontario Hardwood Dry Kilns are powered by a wood (sawdust) fired boiler
that was put online in 2006. Ontario Hardwood Co., Inc. burns its own waste product, sawdust, to heat
the dry kilns. Other waste byproducts
including chips, dust and bark are sold to other companies to be used for additional energy sources, pulp in
making paper products and landscaping materials.
Ontario Hardwood Co., Inc. uses computer guided technology throughout its
manufacturing process to maximize its yield and provide the best possible
product for our customers.
