Whether you are building doors, windows, furniture, or guitars you need wood. And usually you need a very specific cut and size of a certain species. The more specific your product, the more exacting your lumber requirements will be in grade, size, and grain.
At the same time there is a great deal of value engineering that can be done to decrease the manufacturers waste and lower costs. J Gibson McIlvain is the perfect partner to guide you through these value engineering equations. We have the lumber knowledge and history in the business to source exactly what you need and if necessary build a buying program catered to your specific needs to ensure consistent supply of lumber to feed the production process.
Then if you need us to further the production process by milling raw lumber into specific sizes or profiles our on site millworks can do that to your specifications. Or we can just ship out the rough sawn material direct to your shop.
Lumber is an organic material that changes from one board to the next so having a partner who knows what you need and how you use it is imperative to the success of your product, especially in today’s global marketplace where lumber species availability, grade, and price is as variable as the weather.
