Hood Plywood

hood logoA strong entrepreneurial spirit has guided Hood Industries from its beginning three decades ago. That’s not all that remarkable – all great companies begin with a vision and a willingness to takes risks to achieve it. What is remarkable is the willingness of the company’s management from the very beginning to extend the challenges – and rewards – of entrepreneurship to each and every employee.

This unique approach has created an atmosphere that fosters trust, integrity, and accountability to our customers, each other, and the environment. Hood Industries’ history chronicles the success of this philosophy in the company’s growth.

Plywood Manufacturing Plant in Wiggins, MS.

Hood Industries was created in 1983 with the acquisition of a plywood manufacturing mill in Beaumont, Mississippi. The company continued to grow in the late 1980s with the acquisition of two lumber manufacturing plants in Waynesboro, Mississippi and Coushatta, Louisiana and a plywood mill in Wiggins, Mississippi.Hood pic

With these four plants, Hood Industries enjoyed phenomenal growth, particularly in the early 1990s. Because of this growth it was decided to add a broader strength to the company by balancing the manufacturing endeavors with acquisitions in the distribution industry.
