At Timber Products Company, we specialize in hardwood plywood and wood panels with decorative overlays. From veneer to ultralight MDF to particle board, we offer an incredible variety of wood products.
We specialize in hardwood plywood and wood panels with decorative overlays. From veneer to ultralight MDF to particle board, we offer an incredible variety of wood products. And if you don't see exactly what you're looking for, we can custom manufacture what you need.
Our Ampine particleboard division specializes in composite panels responsibly created with the environment in mind. We continually improve processes to reduce waste. We use no-added formaldehyde (NAF) based resins to reduce emissions, and use 100% post-industrial recycled/recovered fiber. Manufactured for superior strength and physical properties, our products can replace MDF in many applications.
Ampine has moisture-resistant and fire-resistant panels available for applications that are more specialized. The extra-smooth finish of our Ampine panels are ideal for painting, lamination or veneer layups.
