A Story of Quality Products, Excellent Service, and
Hardwood & Lumber Co., located in Arlee, Montana, in the beautiful Jocko
Valley just north of Missoula originated as the western end of a business that had is
beginnings in a partnership formed in Mecca, Ohio. Buckeye Hardwoods
started wholesaling small quantities of hardwoods westward in 1984.
After a fire in a neighboring dry kiln destroyed a large quantity of
Buckeye's inventory, the partners (including Hank Adams, current
owner/manager) decided to build their own dry kiln in Eastern Ohio to
maintain better control over their products.
1995, Buckeye Hardwood & Lumber, LLC was formed to
market products in a more efficient manner. As the
co-owner and manager, Hank Adams began to find other
lumber and flooring mills that paid great attention to
detail and produced quality products. As a result,
Buckeye Hardwoods gradually began to purchase all of its
lumber already kiln-dried.
2002, Buckeye Hardwood & Lumber, LLC had grown to the
point that a new building and additional machinery were
needed to provide faster and more precise output to its
customers. A new millworks building was put up and
growth continues today. Also by 2002, Buckeye
Hardwood & Lumber, LLC had outgrown its station as an
LLC and became incorporated in Montana under the name
Buckeye Hardwood & Lumber Co.
Hardwood & Lumber Company continues to grow. After the original addition
in 2002, four more additions have been integrated into the original building,
turning our original mill into a flooring warehouse, and
adding a lumber warehouse, a separate mill area, and a
stair tread workshop.
Buckeye has now grown from a small two-man business, managed in Hank's home
workshop into a great competitor in the hardwood lumber, flooring, and millworks
industry in not only Western Montana, but the entire Northwest Region. The
goal of Buckeye Hardwoods continues to focus on providing excellent service and
maintaining quality products at a reasonable price for Montanans.
