Southern Yellow Pine is a softwood produced from lumber grown in the pine belt of the USA, from Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. Although Pine is a softwood, Pine blocks are extremely durable and reasonably priced.
For over 100 years Pine has been the number one choice in manufacturing facilities in the USA because of its combination of comfort and durability. The US automotive industry -- GM, Ford, & Chrysler -- have been Pine block users for many years. GE plants, Timken Bearings plants, Pratt & Whitney Aircraft, Alcoa, and
the Donnelley & Sons Printing Co. plants are all paved with Southern Yellow Pine blocks. Most Pine block installations in industrial facilities are finished with black coatings. There are many different types of Pine trees; such as Ponderosa, Longleaf, and Southern Yellow. Our Pine roots grew from our industrial block
flooring market. Caterpillar, remains the largest user of Pine blocks in the United States. We believe they have over 30 million square feet of 3” depth Southern Yellow Pine blocks throughout their industrial plants.
Southern Yellow Pine is extremely handsome when sanded and finished with clear coatings. Pine takes stain extremely well, and so the color tone of Southern Yellow Pine can be altered. We are especially proud to be in the Lobby, Hall of Fame, and Ford's Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN. Pine
Blocks were used in streets and on many bridges in the United Stated before prior to the use of asphalt and bricks. Demonbreun Street in Nashville, TN (home to the Country Music Hall of Fame) was once paved with Pine blocks.
For decorative purposes, Eastern and Western Pine blocks show significant color variation from winter growth to summer growth. Blue-ing streaks add another dimension to this very popular specie. In natural color, Pine blocks can be the right choice for log cabins, or barns, or other rustic structures.
