McDowell Lumber and Pallet Company is a leader in the hardwood lumber and pallet industry. We take pride in the long-lasting relationships we have with our customers and the local businesses that keep us running. Employee satisfaction is a top priority for us as well.


Our core values are Safety, Service, Quality Production, and Teamwork.



We are a hardwood lumber manufacturer and a hardwood pallet manufacturer. Our lumber is sold wholesale; pallets and pallet parts are sold locally and through brokers. We sell mulch, chips, and sawdust locally in full trailer loads. We move all our material on our own trucking fleet. We also buy land, timber, and logs.  



In 1974, Tony McDowell planted the seed for what has grown to become McDowell Lumber and Pallet today. Our company’s humble beginnings were sown from a single portable saw and a lumberjack’s eye, as Tony scouted the woods of North Carolina for timber fit to become railroad ties. A few years later, McDowell Lumber branched out from the railroad industry into other markets, supplying raw timber resources that had been crafted into a vast array of grades for a variety of uses.


For nearly 50 years, McDowell Lumber and Pallet has been serving customers in the Carolinas to various states and countries all over the world. No matter how far, our team looks forward to bringing high quality lumber from our forests to you.
