what we strive for

Our customers can rest assured that every inch of material they receive is usable and meets our stringent quality standard. There is so much usable wood already existing in the world, it just needs to be freshened up for reuse, that is where we come in.

Blue Ox was founded in 1998 by Rodney. He has established the values that the company runs by – ‘We do what we say we are going to do’ . That level of integrity and work ethic has kept the business growing all these years. The Blue Ox team upholds these values, and you can expect not only quality service, but a quality product as well.
