About Us

With a history dating back more than 60 years, we have grown from a single location originally founded as Howard Lumber, to six divisions operating under AHC Hardwood Group serving customers throughout the world. We are headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, with operations throughout the Southeast. Our divisions include kiln drying yards, a moulding production facility, a Tennessee-based distribution division, an export division, an import division, and a logistics division with flatbed common carrier capacity servicing areas from Texas to Virginia.

We ship Appalachian hardwood lumber throughout the world and import the finest African and South American hardwoods available. We carry our commitment to excellence to extraordinary levels with a fully integrated process that allows us to control quality from rough green lumber through sales and delivery.

We provide quality and flexibility by offering a wide variety of hardwood products and services. Our quality pledge starts with committed employees. Much of our success can be attributed to expertise in buying from quality timber regions, utilizing technologically advanced equipment, state-of-the-art machining capabilities, and investing in employee training and development. We are a multi-generational company with a long-term vested interest in sustainable forestry.
