ABOUT CHAMPLAIN HARDWOODS


Founded in 1982, Champlain Hardwoods is a responsible buyer and seller of well-manufactured hardwood lumber.  We offer our customers both green and kiln-dried domestic Northern and Appalachian hardwoods with focus on the unique qualities that can only be found in the Northeast.  Our location in Essex Junction, VT (the "Sugar Maple State") is ideal, as we are at the heart of our native hardwood species' optimum growing areas.  As such, we take pride in providing our customers with the highest quality lumber available.

As a wholesaler of hardwood lumber, our reputation for reliability, quality, and integrity is the most important component of our success.  We make a point to represent our lumber accurately and keep our promises.  Our traders have a deep understanding of grading, production, and re-manufacturing, and we take care to learn the details of all our customers' operations.  We understand the subtleties of hardwood lumber that go beyond grade and species, making every load unique, and we take care to ensure that each load is suitable for the particular customer's specs and needs.  This approach also enables us to provide value by sharing relevant trends and observations that can help our customers and suppliers meet their business objectives.

Our strategy is to treat every customer as a long-term partnership, establishing repeat business through fairness and goodwill.  When a customer buys lumber from Champlain Hardwoods, they can expect us to take full accountability for the details of the load and respond with urgency.  We take direct inventory positions rather than acting as a broker, so if there are ever any discrepancies, we will be on the road immediately to tend to the situation in-person.

In addition to our effort to distinguish ourselves in the industry through premier service, we also understand the responsibility to contribute our share to better the industry as a whole.  We are active in many industry organizations as both members and officers, and we are strong supporters of industry education.  Those who do business with Champlain Hardwoods can expect a high caliber of service and commitment to our customers, suppliers, and to the industry.
