Our Story


Our Story

Our name is SR Wood, and we proudly manufacture the highest quality wood veneer for the architectural and OEM furniture trade. We love what we do.

Our Country

SR Wood is located in America’s heartland, nestled perfectly among the world’s finest hardwood forests: Indiana’s white oak, Kentucky’s walnut, Michigan’s maple, and Pennsylvania’s cherry. This geographic proximity to nearby resources is why craftsmen and companies alike have settled in southern Indiana. Combined with access to a talented workforce and major transportation routes, SR Wood’s location plays a vital factor enabling the company to deliver the world’s best wood to your door.

Our Family

SR Wood is a family-owned business, tracing its wood manufacturing roots back to the depths of the Great Depression in 1933, when C.L Westray purchased used woodworking equipment from a bankrupt company in Chicago and loaded it piece by piece onto railcars for transport back to Indiana. Since these humble beginnings, three generations of our family have managed the business, continually instilling a family approach into everyday business practices. SR Wood’s extended family of employees, customers, and suppliers have played and continue to play crucial roles in the company’s growth and development.

Our Passion

In years past, our company produced vinyl wallcovering, developed acoustical and laminate products, and imported decorative materials from Europe and Asia – ventures that provided keen understanding and vast experience into the architectural and design world. Those efforts have been divested, re-started, and divested again. The one constant throughout the decades has been manufacturing wood veneer. Wood is our true passion and purpose, and today represents our primary product.

Our Environment

We believe that those who earn their income by harvesting and selling the benefits of real wood carry a greater responsibility than most. Total transparency is essential. To earn and retain the trust of OEM manufacturers, designers, and end users, we adhere to environmental stewardship and sustainability practices, standards, and ethics.

Our Mission

SR Wood’s mission is to embrace, share, and protect the beauty that is natural wood. We accomplish this by investing in our team, believing in our customers, and leveraging our influence in the marketplace to conserve, protect, and restore our forestry resources.
