Founded in 1980 by Wes Renneberg, Renneberg Hardwoods began as a sawmill and logging operation. A local sawmill had shutdown and Wes saw a need in the community. The sawmill had a small team of 6 and operated in the same location as they operate in today.
In 1984, the first kiln was built and it was the start of Renneberg Hardwoods becoming the number one distributer of top quality kiln dried lumber in the midwest. By 1990, the team had perfected the process and grew into a team of 15 employees distributing their lumber mainly to cabinet shops and furniture makers. In 1994, Renneberg expanded once again by adding the Dimensions shop for the production of high quality mouldings.
Renneberg Hardwoods prides itself on its intensely monitored kiln drying process, ensuring nothing but perfection in their end product. It has grown into a 75-person operation and maintains its roots by supporting sawmills both locally and throughout the country.
