Let's Get Started

W.R. Robinson Lumber Company has been in business in central Massachusetts for over 40 years. It’s founder, Bill Robinson, began logging in the early 1960’s and soon started making lumber with a portable sawmill he moved to each wood lot.

In the early 1970’s, a permanent sawmill location was established in the town of Hardwick, Massachusetts, where the mill still stands today. Along with the sawmill are two dry kilns, a planing operation and an 11,000 square foot retail building stocked with a variety of different sizes and patterns of Eastern White Pine products.

Although many may not think of Massachusetts as a timber-producing region, Robinson Lumber’s sawmill sits in some of the best White Pine timber country in the Northeast. The majority of it’s timber is harvested within a 25 mile radius of the sawmill and many woodlots are managed so we can re-harvest again within 10-15 years.

The company has grown significantly over time but remains a family business at heart. Bill’s sons, Bill Jr. and Ken now run the business along with several lifetime employees. Their personal touch, combined with their vast industry knowledge will make your experience at Robinson Lumber first rate.
