Vertical integration provides real benefits for Augusta Surfaces customers. Much of our raw material comes from our own production facilities. A close relationship with suppliers affords us access to raw material our competitors may not enjoy, also enabling suppressed order to delivery lead times. Internal sourcing allows us to synchronize raw material procurement precisely with customer demand.
The Augusta Production System provides the foundation for Augusta Surfaces. We understand the increasingly sophisticated demands of the consumer and the impact of this demand on how we do business. Today’s customer demands quality, delivery performance, stellar customer service and a competitive price. This means the entire system (from “woods to goods”) must aim toward world class performance. As such, the Augusta Surfaces team consists of professionals in the areas of Lean Manufacturing, Statistical Process Control and Six Sigma. We approach every aspect of our business in the spirit of Continuous Improvement. Our customers expect nothing less from us.
In addition to exceptional quality and service, today’s environmentally conscious consumer demands sustainably manufactured products as well. Augusta Surface’s products are produced within a day’s drive of our upstream lumber manufacturing facilities. Combining the renewable nature of wood, sustainability of the Appalachian region and small carbon footprint of our products means customers can purchase from Augusta Surfaces with a clear conscience. In fact, there are few greener choices.
For those seeking the richness and warmth of solid hardwood, the unique character and durability of butcher block surfaces, the confidence of exacting quality standards and the peace of mind that comes with an environmentally responsible purchase, Augusta Surfaces is the right choice.
