A Niche Business Importing Exotic Timber for Specialized Uses – the Overseas Hardwoods Company
Posted On May 20, 2019
Luckett Robinson’s grandfather owned a timber mill on the Mobile River. His father began importing exotic timber fifty years ago. The business is deep in his blood and today he and three of his siblings run the company. They’ve completed some recent acquisitions that will propel growth westward from Texas and opened some retail stores for customers come to see, smell, and touch the beautiful products they find and import from all corners of the world. The job requires lots of travel and lots of relationship building with land-owners and timber companies from a wide variety of cultures.
