Champlain Hardwoods - The Company With A Heart
Founded in 1982, Champlain Hardwoods is a Vermont-based responsible buyer and seller of well-manufactured hardwood lumber. Our focus is on the unique qualities that can only be found in the Northeast. We strive to create mutually beneficial relationships with our trading partners and to provide a smooth flow with caring and knowledgeable service.
2007 marks Champlain Hardwoods' 25th Year in business. From day one, we have always specialized in domestic hardwoods. This means that our customers get all of the best lumber we have with no exceptions; no export grade or special stock is pulled from our shipments. Our focus in 2007 is to make sure our customers continue make money with our lumber.
In Select and Better hardwood lumber, the entire board must be flat enough to cleanly surface out at standard surfaced thickness, leaving very little margin for warp. In the common grades, however, the rule applies only to the individual cuttings, allowing a greater tolerance for warp. We discuss the implications for our customers' operations from rule subtleties like this every day.
