Quality Hardwoods specializes in Northern hardwood species, NHLA grading rules, kiln drying, and preparing
products that are dressed to specification and export prepared. Located 3 hours from Toronto and a short distance from North
Bay, Quality Hardwoods has quick and easy access to ports, railheads and sawmills. The company purchases green lumber from many
sawmills throughout Quebec and Northern and Southern Ontario. The lumber is dried in one of their 10 Nardi Dry Kilns and sorted
in steel warehouses which are insulated, heated and climate controlled year-round. The kilns have a drying capacity of 450,000
board feet and the kiln-dried lumber is never exposed to the elements. A Newman double planer and automated grading line have
been incorporated into one of the warehouses. The planer is designed to handle both short and long stock, and the grading line
can do 22 different sorts for colour, length and grade. Primary species include Red Oak, Ash Cherry, Aspen, Basswood, Yellow
and White Birch and Hard and Soft Maple.
