Lumber is the largest wholesale-hardwood distributor on the eastern seaboard. In
business for over 50 years, Rex Lumber services woodworkers, retailers, store
fixture manufacturers and other companies that use hardwood lumber in their
manufacturing processes. Rex employs over 300 people, but has been able to
maintain a family-like atmosphere in spite of its growth. Many employees have
been with the company for 10, 20 or even 40 years. The combination of dedicated
employees, a long list of good suppliers of high quality lumber, and loyal
customers has enabled Rex to become one of the premier hardwood and softwood
suppliers in the country.
Rex Lumber Company has four facilities located in Acton,
Massachusetts, South Windsor, Connecticut, Englishtown, New
Jersey and Doswell, Virginia. Our corporate headquarters in
Acton is also home to over three million board feet of
kiln-dried lumber, and approximately 500,000 board feet of
air-dried lumber. Eight kilns transform green lumber into
dry stock ready for sale. Thousands of lineal feet of
molding and surfaced lumber are processed daily in the
Massachusetts mill which has three molders and two planers.
Our largest mill is located in Connecticut, where there are
five molders and a state-of-the-art computerized, cross-cut
& rip saw. The Englishtown facility also has a mill and
stores up to 1.5 million board feet of kiln-dried stock and
two million board feet of air-dried stock. The Virginia
facility is smaller, storing 600,000 board feet of
kiln-dried lumber. The millwork facility has a roughing
planer, a cabinet planer and a straight-line rip saw.
Trucks leave Rex facilities daily and deliver lumber to
customers from Maine to North Carolina. We also export
lumber overseas and ship lumber via contract carrier to the
Midwest and West Coast.
