About Us

After more than 70 years in the lumber business, we are recognized as one of the largest lumber companies in the Southeast. Originally founded as Howard Lumber in 1952. In the 1960s, Atlanta Hardwood became the sales arm for Howard Lumber. In 1966, we opened a second plant in Huntersville, North Carolina to service the furniture industry. Today, with four kiln drying yards operating under AHC Hardwood Group, we process, distribute and export more than 50 million board-feet of hardwood lumber each year, shipping the finest Appalachian, African and South American hardwoods available to customers throughout the world. 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.
