A good tree produces good fruits. It’s true in the forest, and it’s true in business. Granite Valley Forest Products is very intentional about nurturing the roots of its business—the culture that drives quality and performance. From foresters to kiln operators, the staff at Granite Valley is trained at a level well above and beyond industry norms, and they work in a culture that fosters longevity and experience.

“Professionalism, productivity, and performance all result from a culture that emphasizes expertise and expects excellence” said Gus Welter, owner of Granite Valley. “This doesn’t happen by coincidence or by accident. It takes commitment, vigilance, and a team of people who have the experience to anticipate issues and the discipline to get the details right.”

The results show. In consistency, quality, accuracy, inventory, and delivery, Granite Valley simply performs at a higher level.
