OHC Supplies the Suppliers with Hardwood Decking

No competitor matches OHC in diversity or hardwood decking supply.  OHC stocks more Ipé wood, Cumaru, Garapa, and Tigerwood – over 1.0 million board feet- in more lengths and sizes than any other supplier in the country.  Our inventory ranges in sizes from standard decking to heavy timbers.  We carry inventory in over 250,000 square feet of warehouses strategically located in Illinois, Texas, Alabama and Wisconsin.  This allows us to supply these hardwoods to every type of job, from the small, standard length deck to large commercial boardwalk projects involving heavy timbers and odd lengths.

Ipe Lumber in BrazilWe personally select our lumber and our suppliers – in Brazil.

Our management team travels to Brazil two to four times every year.  Gregory Robinson, OHC’s primary Ipé buyer, has developed personal relationships with our suppliers – he speaks Portuguese.  Gregory, Lee Robinson, Luckett Robinson and Bill Schaffers’ frequent visits ensure that OHC buys only from mills that follow responsible and legal harvesting practices.  OHC gets Chain of Custody documentation with each shipment.  Our routine trips to our supply base enable OHC to buy at the right times and the best possible prices.

We handle overseas packaging and shipping.

OHC dictates how our suppliers package and ship hardwood decking to us.  We also unload and inspect our own container shipments so that we avoid damage caused by port facilities. OHC’s highly trained teams inspect each and every shipment to verify quantity, grade and quality meet our exacting standards.

We custom manufacture.

OHC manufactures custom, high performance products in our own manufacturing facility.  We use Woods and Leadermac Moulders,  specialty trim and rip saws, table shapers, sanders and routers.   OHC can machine hardwood for almost any commercial or residential application imaginable.
