Your Premium Hardwoods Distributor
TBM Hardwoods, Inc. is a family-owned and operated premium hardwoods supplier.
We have an industry heritage dating back to the late 1700’s, and have been exceeding the high expectations of the finest buyers and craftsmen for three generations.
A Hardwood Lumber Company with a Vision
We’ve been striving for excellence in hardwood lumber distribution for over three generations. In 1955, fifth generation lumberman T. Baird McIlvain Sr. started his own hardwood and softwood lumber distribution company. His vision was to partner with the best, deliver consistent, high quality lumber and focus on developing lasting relationships. That vision is at the heart of TBM to this day. Our partnerships with the most reputable sawmills allow us to procure the highest quality hardwood lumber. Our vertical integration allows us to control the entire process. From kiln-drying, sorting, milling, to final delivery on our fleet of trucks, TBM is in control.
Value-add Millwork Services
In addition to the variety of rough cut hardwood lumber offerings, we offer value-added millwork services that help increase yields, reduce labor cost, and minimize waste for our customers:
Our ability to quickly pull, mill and deliver what you need is what we do best. Give us a call and speak directly with Baird or Russ for suggestions and solutions. Our aim is to exceed expectations for quality, price and delivery
TBM Hardwoods has been a family-owned and operated hardwood distributor since 1955. While faces, ownership and processes have changed over the years, our commitment to premium quality and customer care have not.
T. Baird’s son Tom joined the operation in 1965. With summers working in the yard, a business degree and guidance from his father, Tom expanded sales developing accounts along the eastern seaboard from Virginia to New Hampshire.
The company’s reputation for dedicated customer service and quality spread as we served the needs of high profile accounts and nationally recognized brands.
The company expanded in the 1980’s specializing in imported hardwoods. We began to directly import exotics, specifically Genuine Mahogany and Spanish Cedar from South and Central America and Africa. Headquarters moved from King of Prussia to Hanover, PA and we consolidated and centralized kiln-drying, operations and inventory. In the 1990’s, Tom’s children Kim, Baird and Russell joined the company. TBM invested in custom mouldings, ripsawing and priming operations to become a full-service millwork and hardwood supplier.
Today, with over 7 million board feet in our Hanover yard, a fleet of delivery vehicles, and an experienced and dedicated workforce, TBM Hardwoods is positioned to serve the growing needs of a variety of successful national and international manufacturers.
