We Help You Succeed

Because of the timber industry’s great importance in the Mountain State, The West Virginia Division of Forestry is responsible for providing technology transfer and expertise to start-up companies as well as existing businesses of wood manufacturing. This includes conducting resource analysis studies to ensure there is enough wood resources in an area before a company decides to expand. This helps reduce the chance of overproduction, which may lead to a company to go out of business. Marketing assistance is provided to help companies locate new markets for their products as well.

Wood products manufacturing businesses includes loggers, sawmills, dry kilns, rustic rail fence producers, veneer plants, furniture parts producers, kitchen cabinets and other wooden furniture.
