One Way to Improve Your Business is
 to Improve Who You Do Business With

You deserve to work with the best.  At Northern Forest Products (NFP), we believe this means more than just selling you hardwoods.  We have all the high-tech equipment to offer you efficiencies and economies.  But we're still old-school when it comes to having you deal with experienced Lumber People, maintaining quality, and being true to our word.  It all adds up to quality hardwoods and easy solutions for you.

NFP is a wholesale distributor of hardwood lumber, component parts, and Baltic Birch Plywood.  Our Centerville, MN facility includes a 40,000 sq. ft. distribution center, with over 750,000 board feet of premium quality hardwoods from a variety of regions in the U.S. and around the world.  We specialize in carrying a diverse range of thicknesses and species, continually stocking 4/4 through 10/4 thicknesses in a majority of domestic species and a full line of exotic hardwoods.  We also stock Western Red Alder, Northern White Pine, and Baltic Birch Plywood.

NFP is 50% owned by a Michigan hardwood lumber sawmill and dry kiln facility.  The Michigan operation is located in a prime area for desirable Northern characteristics in such species as White Hard Maple, Red Oak, and Soft Maple.

Our complete milling facility is highlighted by our new, high-tech Raimann optimizing ripsaw.  Using laser optics and two movable blades to help us get the most out of every board - its capabilities are responsible for our Cutting Edge offerings.  We also offer finish planing, sanding, chop-to-length, and delivery services.

The strength of Northern Forest Products has always been our people and their experience.  And now we are armed with some great technology, too.  I hope you enjoy viewing what our Lumber People can do for you.
