Fruitland, ID—Woodgrain, headquartered here, is expanding its operations with the acquisition of
Independence Lumber, which has sawmill locations in Independence, VA and Elkin, NC. This purchase will lead to the creation of new jobs and the retention of existing jobs in the two locations, while also allowing Woodgrain to further leverage its vertical integration by supplying lumber to its nearby millwork locations.

With the acquisition, the Independence, VA facility will generate 20 new jobs and save 80 existing jobs at Independence Lumber, which is Grayson County’s largest private employer. After the completion of upgrades to the sawmill, it will serve as Woodgrain’s primary supplier for its Marion, VA millwork site.

The Elkin location will also be upgraded with new machinery and equipment, while resulting in the retention of the current workforce and the addition of new jobs. This sawmill location will allow Woodgrain to supply lumber to its millwork location in nearby Lenoir, NC, further allowing Woodgrain to provide the best possible service and product in a highly efficient manner.

Woodgrain is one of the largest millwork operations in the world with operations all over the United States and Chile. With more than 65 years of quality craftsmanship and service, they make high quality wood mouldings, doors, and windows. Woodgrain’s strength comes from being vertically integrated which allows them to oversee each step of the supply chain. Woodgrain is proud to be family-owned and operated with the third generation leading the way.
