What We Do
At States Industries, we manufacture custom, hardwood panels for craftsmen, architects, designers and fabricators to use in creating beautiful, timeless and environmentally responsible products.
Every part of a States panel can be customized to match your precise specifications. Whether you need small quantities suitable for a custom remodel or large quantities for use in commercial applications, you can have confidence specifying States panels for your next project.
5. Additional machining
Our proprietary manufacturing process allows you to customize every detail about your panel, from the substrate to the veneer species to the color and unique properties of its NOVA finish.
Expertise in three key areas
Our strength is in the fabrication of panels to very specific criteria of species, thickness, tolerances, adhesive type, substrate, environmental certification, fire rating, volume and cost. Each of our products is made-to-order from customer-supplied specifications.
States operates the largest and most flexible finishing line in the industry. Our NOVA finishes are recognized as the leader among woodworking professionals. States was the first to offer pre-finished panels. And this has given us an edge, allowing us to dominate in this area. We offer a range of finish options, from simple clear finishes and stock colors to specialty coatings and custom color matching.
States’ component plant is equipped with point-to-point machining centers, beam saws, edgebanders and a host of smaller equipment. This allows customers to specify exactly what they want. We can process finished or unfinished panels into cut parts, edgebanded and dowel-inserted case good components or complete contract-manufactured panel goods.
What’s On the Inside Matters
When manufacturing a high-quality hardwood plywood panel, the elements you leave out are just as important as the ingredients you put in. All veneer core panels from States are made with SoyStrong, a 100% soy-based adhesive. They are free from all formaldehyde resins and are designated NAF for No-Added-Formaldehyde. MDF and particleboard substrates are NAUF for No-Added-Urea-Formaldehyde.
All SoyStrong panels exceed California Air Resource Board and USGBC LEED Criteria.
Eclipsing Industry Standards
Veneer core panels made with SoyStrong tested 75% lower in formaldehyde emissions than the lowest international formaldehyde standard.
The 0.009 PPM reading in SoyStrong panels represents trace levels of naturally occurring formaldehyde in the wood fiber itself. No other panel manufacturer can document a lower average reading.
No other manufacturer in our industry is more responsive to the specialized needs of woodworking
