Nature’s Blend Wood Products has been in the wood working business for over 30 years. We have come a long way since our humble beginnings as Nature’s Blend – a small six-person shop in Hawthorne, Pennsylvania manufacturing decorative briquettes for use on indoor surfaces, flooring and moldings.
In 1987 we moved to our current location along the Allegheny River in Ford City, Pennsylvania. In 1989 we began manufacturing cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and framing for some of the area’s largest housing builders. This was the catalyst that started us on the path to being the full service custom cabinet manufacturer that we are today.
By 1999, Nature’s Blend had grown in sales and product offerings, necessitating expansion. We doubled our production floor space to over 80,000 sq. ft. and invested in additional equipment. This expansion provided us with the means to process hardwoods from kiln-dried state to finished product, ready to install.
In 2010 we changed our name to NB Wood Products to better reflect the nature of our business. By then we had diversified and expanded to include not only a complete line of hardwood cabinetry, but also handrails, fireplace and tub surrounds, moldings, “custom kitchens” and bathrooms.
