Bessemer plywood began business in 1986, shipping its first truckload on November 4th of that year.
Bessemer Plywood has remained competitive over the years through hard work, innovation and keeping up with technologies. Some of these technological advances include a lathe utilizing an XY charger to ensure maximum yield of the log, and an efficient 20 unit veneer dryer.
Close attention to quality is paid throughout the process. Truckload shipments may contain a variety of products including certified sheathing, underlayments, AC’s and industrial grades in thicknesses from 1/4″ to 1-1/8″. The panels are stable and lighter in weight than comparable OSB, SYP and doug fir plywood panels. Along with Agency Certified panels Bessemer Plywood Corp. can produce proprietary grades for specific customer needs.
