A Commitment to Sustainability

Young Manufacturing Company truly values natural resources. As a major player in the hardwood industry, we have between 5 and 7 million board feet of lumber in process at all times. So, our commitment to quality products begins with a commitment to sustainable forestry.

To maintain the integrity of our forests, we harvest only mature timber. We never participate in complete cuts, or "clear-cutting." We not only manage our own forests, we work with other land owners to help them manage responsibly. Besides high-quality hardwood for today, our practices ensure the quality and availability of hardwood for future generations. We have been harvesting the same forests since 1858. We continue to manage them so they will provide lumber for as long as people need.

Young is proud to operate as a green company.

Beyond a commitment to sustainable forestry, we are a resourceful manufacturer, producing very little waste. We process over 60 million pounds of lumber and raw materials annually. We convert 99 percent of these into sellable products, energy, and recycled materials. Said another way, only one percent of the materials used in our processes ends up as waste.

Young Manufacturing began to experiment with Electrical Power Generation in 1976 due to the foresight of future environmental regulations and waste disposal problems with our wood waste (sawdust, shavings, and scrap wood). YMC desired to generate electricity and heat energy, as the facilities use more than 1.25 mega watts of energy. Using wood waste to generate power reduces electrical cost and reduces the amount of material going to landfills.

Last, since 2000, we have collected our steel banding throughout the year and sold it to fund scholarships for our employees and their families.
