Become a Log Supplier

More than 100 Years of Experience

For more than a century, Great Lakes Veneer has partnered with log suppliers to procure high-quality hardwood logs for its veneer products, such as flooring, musical instruments and wood veneer sheets. We have become one of the most respected hardwood veneer log buyers because our team of buying experts fosters strong relationships and open communication with sawmills, log concentration yards and independent log cutters.

The impact of innovation

Our suppliers often voice appreciation in our ability to adapt and utilize all the logs they supply, including rough-cut, shorter hardwoods.

Great Lakes Veneer has always placed a tremendous focus on technology to enhance our manufacturing process and increase overall capabilities, so we can use a variety of hardwood log species and grades.  In addition, we’ve cultivated relationships with a broad range of customers, some of whom request veneer products that feature interesting visual characteristics. For that reason, unlike other veneer log buyers, we will buy logs with:

  • Varying heart sizes
  • Different lengths
  • Small diameters
  • And other characteristics other log buyers may not seek

As a major veneer log buyer in the United States, we believe our innovations aid in the success of our suppliers, ultimately creating long successful partnerships for many years to come.
