The Legacy of Craftsmanship: Over a Century with Gerber Wood

A Rich Heritage

Gerber Wood Products traces its heritage back to 1901, when E.P. Gerber founded a sawmill to serve his local community in Kidron, Ohio. Over time, he expanded his business into a full-service hardware and building materials store. And when the second generation of the family arrived, the business expanded again to add a woodworking shop. As the community continued to grow, the third generation of the Gerber family also added wood molding equipment to assist the area’s furniture-making trade.


Tried and True Craftsmanship

Today, Gerber Wood Products has a nearly 50,000 square foot facility with space for manufacturing, warehousing, and more. Even as we’ve continued to expand, the Gerber family legacy keeps us rooted to the time-honored traditions that led us to this point. By focusing on consistently delivering high-quality work with creative, artistic craftsmanship, our team is able to offer beautiful personalized wood products.


We’re proud to continue the incredible legacy of E.P. Gerber — and hope to do so for many years to come. As we continue to utilize our experience and make use of the latest woodworking techniques and equipment, we’re confident we’ll be able to help with your needs, too.
