While Timber Products Company takes pride in its complete control of the wood production process, we can not take full credit for the high levels of quality we’re able to provide our end-users. We benefit from the resources, support and tireless advocacy of affiliate organizations who work to create a strong, sustainable, and competitive environment at every level of the wood product manufacturing process.
Consider the following four examples of how our affiliate partners help Timber Products increasingly push for the highest levels of quality within the wood products industry.
The California Forestry Association strives to serve as a unified voice among forest owners and forest products producers. It understands that healthy forests are good for communities and businesses and that the only way both can thrive long-term is through responsible forest stewardship. The association works with members like Timber Products and the forestry industry at large to encourage the application of environmental standards and successful forest practices. Through our CFA membership, we stay abreast of the changing forestry practices developed for best management and protection of this resource.
HPVA (Now the Decorative Hardwood Association - DHA)
The Hardwood Plywood & Veneer Association (Now the Decorative Hardwood Association as of January 2018) drives the creation of policies that support safe manufacturing, fair trade practices and competitive manufacturing across the hardwood plywood, hardwood veneer and engineered hardwood flooring industries. In addition, its standards and certifications help create a level playing field in which member companies like us can confidently demonstrate our products’ quality performance to our customers.
The Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association is an industry-specific resource for ensuring the manufacture of high-quality cabinetry. Through its certification and Environmental Stewardship programs, the organization helps drive designers and consumers toward greater acceptance and use of sustainably produced materials and durable end-products. At Timber Products, we benefit from sustainability compliance resources and promotional materials, as well as a connection to cabinet manufacturers dedicated to working only with the highest quality materials.
Since its founding in 1898, the National Hardwood Lumber Association has grown to represent the hardwood supply chain at all levels of production. The international trade association serves as the voice of the hardwood industry in its effort to maintain structure and ethics in the changing global hardwood marketplace, promote North American hardwood lumber, and advocate for the interests of the hardwood community in public/private policy issues. In turn, it provides members with resources ranging from inspectors and inspector training to kiln drying certification to ensure their products remain industry leading.
