 FOREST PRODUCTS LEADERS OF MANUFACTURED WOOD PARTS

 

 

OUR HISTORY

Forest Products Manufacturing Company, Inc. was founded in 1940.  It is located in Jasper, Indiana.  Jasper is located in the gently rolling hills of southern Indiana which produce some of the finest hardwood trees in the world.  Jasper is also a community with a deep German heritage.  Blessed with skilled craftsmen and cabinet makers, it is no coincidence that Jasper is home to an abundance of wood related industries.

  Forest Products has been supplying quality dimension and custom wood component parts to various industries for over 60 years.  Home, office, school, and library furniture manufacturers are all clients of Forest Products. The healthcare industry and the kitchen cabinet industry are also major markets for our products.

  Originally employing only six people, Forest Products intended simply to provide the service of cutting defects from lumber to produce crating and pallet type products.  But after World War II the demand for wood products increased.  With the skilled labor and basic woodworking equipment in place, Forest Products began producing other products in demand; fan blades, venetian blind slats, drapery hangers to name a few.  As the company grew, word of the high quality and variety of capabilities of Forest Products spread. Employment increased in the 1950’s and 1960’s.  As the baby boom generation was being born, the kitchen cabinet industry took center stage. With demand for furniture and kitchen cabinet parts increasing dramatically, Forest Products added equipment and employees and grew even more to roughly 60 employees.  In 1975 Forest Products expanded to a second location in central Missouri.  Mo—Wood Products was born.  Mo—Wood Products, located in California, Missouri, allowed Forest Products to better diversify.  Mo—Wood, having the ability to market kiln dried lumber and semi and fully machined parts, took over manufacturing much of the kitchen cabinet business of the company.  Thus allowing Forest Products to continue to expand its value added products to the office furniture and home furniture markets.

With Mo—Wood ideally located to service our customers to the west and Forest Products seated in the “wood office furniture capital of the world” employment settled near 100.  Both companies are equipped with a wide variety of woodworking equipment.  Couple this with the workforce of hard working skilled craftsmen our companies are ideally positioned to meet your hardwood component needs.  As times change, needs change.  Forest Products is well positioned for the changing future.
