Founded in 1982 by an insightful team who saw the need for a high-production pressure treating facility in central Florida, Sunbelt Forest Products has grown to become one of the largest and most diverse wood preserving operations in the Southeast. In 2015, we expanded our operation with the acquisition of three treating facilities in northern and central Alabama and north Florida. At peak production, we are capable of treating in excess of 600 million board feet annually.
We built our facility from the ground up and began operations as a custom treating service for large volume users of pressure treated lumber. Though we’re still providing TSO services to our customers, it is no longer a large part of our marketing mix. We currently sell our lumber to mass merchandisers and large independent lumber yards throughout Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina, and the Caribbean basin.

We are also a major importer of pine fencing from South America, which we use to provide pressure treated fencing to our customers all over the southeastern United States.
In addition, we have large re-manufacturing facilities on site which allow us to expand our product line to include specialty items like balusters, pattern stock, decking and furring strips.
In an industry that is constantly evolving and changing, Sunbelt Forest Products continues to be at the forefront of emerging wood preserving techniques. We were the first facility in Florida to introduce treating with arsenic-free preservatives, as well as the first in the state to start treating with water repellents and mold inhibitors.
We are currently one of the largest treaters of non-metal preservatives in the United States, using Ecolife, a non-metallic preservative, and wood stabilizers offering weathering protection and other environmentally-friendly attributes. We were the first treatment facility in the nation to put this product into mass production.
Most of our management team has been intact for more than 20 years. Our knowledgeable and experienced team here at Sunbelt Forest Products Corporation stands ready to service all of your treating needs. Please give us a call or drop us a line.
