Hood Industries, Inc. is a blend of wood manufacturing and distribution concerns that include two plywood and two lumber manufacturing plants, and fourteen specialty wood product distribution operations, located in thirteen states serving the northeast, southeast and southwest United States.

After acquiring plywood manufacturing plants in Beaumont and Wiggins, Mississippi, these plants were merged into one company in 1986, Hood Industries. The company continued to grow with acquisitions including two lumber manufacturing plants in Waynesboro, Mississippi and Metcalfe, Georgia. With these plants, Hood Industries enjoyed phenomenal growth.

Because of this growth, the company decided to add broader strength to the company by balancing the manufacturing endeavors with acquisitions in the distribution industry. In 1995, they purchased the McEwen Company from International Paper. Then in 1998, Hood Industries had the opportunity to acquire another specialty distributor, this time in the N​ew England area, the McQuesten Company.  Learn more about Hood Industries​.​​​
