In 1999 a business enterprise was developed, dedicated to producing and delivering excellent craftsmanship in wood products.
From the beginning, a stable wood supply was the foundation for the company.
With 12 years prior experience in the timber industry managing logging and sales of domestic and international timber, many contacts in the timber business were developed giving access to numerous sources for saw logs and base wood stock from a variety of species. A mill operation was also set up with equipment that included a Northland dry kiln. The milling operation manufactured lumber products and provided drying services both in-house and to other companies. The business was formalized during these early years and Craftmark, Inc. was created.
In 2001 Craftmark embarked on an aggressive two-year-long expansion into a new facility and acquisition of equipment for the production of high-end flooring, trim and molding products. Numerous sources for reclaimed timbers were uncovered, and long-term relationships were formed to provide a stable flow of raw material. During those years Craftmark specialized in reclaimed and recycled wood products and its operation expanded.
The industry met lean times in 2008, however Craftmark continued to operate by innovating, becoming more efficient, and diversifying.
By 2004 the business had outgrown the current facility, relocated and expanded again providing reclaimed lumber and millwork for high end homes with a large volume of production shipping to the Napa Valley, California area.
The industry met lean times in 2008, however Craftmark continued to operate by innovating, becoming more efficient, and diversifying. In 2010 a local lumber giant closed its doors. Capitalizing on the timing, Craftmark took a risk and brought on some of their key personnel to expand the line of products and services Craftmark offered. Craftmark’s knowledge of the timber and milling industry coupled with the resources and talent of the new team proved to be a winning combination.
