Our History

Milt Cole founded Cole Hardwood in 1986 with a firm commitment to excellence. Today, this commitment continues throughout every aspect of the company including the product we source, the people we hire, and most of all, in the way we serve our customers.

With excellence as our “standard”, Cole Hardwood is known as one of the nation's leading hardwood processors and distributors. Our supply-demand capabilities ranging from 1000 to multi-million board feet, our own trucks and sophisticated expediting/exporting processes, have earned us over 1300 customers in over 40 countries.

Cole is active in our hometown community, as well. Every year we make significant donations to various organizations to help those in need and elevate those around us. After all, we know that we would not exist today without the love and support of the folks around us.
