Jackson County, Ohio’s location in the Appalachian foothills puts us in the middle of thousands of acres of beautiful, renewable forest land. Add in our excellent transportation resources, and generations of highly skilled craftsmen, and it’s easy to see why we’ve become a site for cooperages, fine cabinetry, precision milling, furniture, and other wood products.
Local forests grow an inexhaustible supply of red oak, white oak, poplar, ash, hickory, hard maple, soft maple, cherry, and walnut, among others. That has drawn wood industry leaders such as Brown-Forman Cooperage and Scotland-based Speyside Bourbon Cooperage, and made us the perfect corporate headquarters location for Superior Hardwoods of Ohio. Local educators support that tradition of skilled workmanship with programs in fine woodworking, electrical, process improvement, industrial automation and maintenance, LEAN/Six Sigma, and others.
Our abundant and affordable utilities, including plenty of electricity, natural gas, and water meet the demands of woodworking companies, while our extensive transportation infrastructure makes it easy and affordable to move finished products over divided highways, interstate highways, and rail to markets such as Huntington and Charleston, West Virginia, Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, Ohio, and the rest of the nation.
