The Sears & Roebuck Catalog Complex, Chicago IL

Sears and Roebuck Complex, Chicago

The owner and founder of The Joinery Company, Dewey V. Hudson, has been designing and manufacturing unique flooring products since the early 1970s and is one of the founders of the Reclaimed Wood Industry. His work has been recognized both in the United States and abroad by awards, publications and patents.

The Joinery Company has been a leader in the Reclaimed Wood Industry for more than four decades. It grew from a small company in the early 1970s to the uncontested industry leader by 1995. In 1994, the Joinery Company successfully reclaimed 12,000,000 board feet of timbers and planks from the largest timberframe structure ever built. These reclaimed Antique Heart Pine products were shipped all over the world and represented the largest reclamation project of its kind in the twentieth century.

As the twenty-first century was about to get underway, Dewey was awarded an important US patent in Laminated Wood Products for a new wood matching technique he invented. Today, The Joinery Company continues to use that patent to make its unique engineered floors, cabinetry, and furniture. Dewey has continued to travel the globe on a regular basis looking for ways to apply the patent, expand The Joinery`s product lines, and strengthen its brands. As a result of those efforts, The Joinery has developed many strong relationships around the world with designers, architects, and contract manufacturers. The Joinery Company is well organized and has at its disposal a perfect network of companies, craftsmen, and technical services to handle any and all projects anywhere in the world.
