Before its assets were purchased in early 2010 by Catawissa Wood and Components Inc., Catawissa Lumber & Specialty Co., Inc. had provided its customers with quality hardwood components and a commitment to service that has set the industry standard for over 50 years. Catawissa Wood and Components Inc., intends to continue that same commitment to our customers. With over 70 employees operating from a modern 76,000 square foot manufacturing facility located in the community of Elysburg, PA, we are capable of processing 8 million board feet of lumber into hundreds of thousands of wood components each year. Catawissa Wood and Components Inc., is FSC certified, meeting with the highest social and environmental standards in the market.
Our customers are large and small; domestic and international. They come to Catawissa for our outstanding customer service and our region's famed Appalachian hardwoods.
When lumber arrives at our Elysburg Plant's yard facilities, our NHLA certified lumber procurement staff starts the process by personally selecting and grading our raw materials. The lumber is then carefully handled, stacked, seasoned, and stored to preserve its natural beauty. All our kiln dried lumber is monitored meticulously each step of the drying process resulting in stress-free lumber within a range of 5 to 7 percent moisture content.
Acquiring and seasoning our lumber is just the beginning. Catawissa's Elysburg Plant, with 76,000 square feet of manufacturing space, can service your hardwood needs. Whether it's kiln dried lumber, surfaced boards ripped-to-width, or semi-machined components, we are equipped and have the capacity to handle your orders both large and small on a just-in-time basis or through Catawissa's warehouse program.
