“I’ve never considered my work a job. My companies are simply the result of my passion for beautiful woods. That beauty has been a driving force in me for as long as I can remember.”

  • Invented a color and grain matching technique for reclaimed wood products
  • First person in the United States to create reclaimed engineered wood flooring [US Patent 5968625]
  • Named NEER Entrepreneur of the Year for reclamation and product development in reclaimed woods

Dewey Hudson has been designing and manufacturing unique flooring products since the early 1970s. He 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.

Dewey’s companies have been leaders in the Reclaimed Wood Industry for more than four decades. They grew from humble beginnings in the early 1970s to an uncontested industry leader by 1995. In 1994, The Joinery Company successfully reclaimed 12,000,000 board feet of timbers and planks from the largest timber frame structure ever built. These Reclaimed 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, he continues to use that patent to make unique engineered floors, cabinetry, and fine furniture. Dewey has continued to travel the globe on a regular basis looking for ways to apply the patent, expand his product lines, and strengthen its brands. As a result of those efforts, Dewey Hudson has developed many strong relationships around the world with designers, architects, and contract manufacturers.  All of his companies are well organized and have at their disposal a perfect network of companies, craftsmen, and technical services to handle any and all projects anywhere in the world. Currently, The Joinery Co. is opening a new office in Southeast Asia to expand its manufacturing and add new product lines.
