West Va. Forest Products Survives Market Shift With Transition to Specialty Pallet Stock

[West Virginia] Add value to raw material and establish long-term relationships with both the supplier and distributor ends of the economic chain. That sums up the business philosophy of Jim Hinkle, president of West Virginia Forest Products LLC. “West Virginia has always been a state that exported its raw material to let value be added elsewhere – Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina” beyond, said Jim. He wanted to change that equation and help his state thrive. “We take the lowest common denominator material and add value, keeping jobs here,” he explained. Long-term relationships make it all possible. Jim seeks long-term relationships with not only his employees but also the customers and the supply chain
