Olympic Industries produces a wide range of Lodgepole Pine, Spruce, Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir specialty products. Our ability to do this is based on the relationships we have built with a variety of high quality custom manufacturers over more than 25 years. By partnering with our distributors in analyzing their individual markets, we custom design programs that maximize turns and profit, while utilizing our “extra-quick” ability to ship exact orders on an “as needed” basis.
We proudly produce Pacific Pine 1×4, 1×6 and 1×8. These are tongue and groove, v-joint, shiplap and flooring patterns that are just a few examples of what we make. Combined with our various decking programs, these products are the backbone of our manufacturing business. Our distributors blanket Western North America and are the beneficiaries of our skills and attention to detail. While we do make “stock” products like V-groove paneling, we also make custom “one-off” products when requested. This type of service is one example of our commitment to making “what the customer wants.” Try us out. We love a challenge. Contact us to find the distributor in your area.
