WELCOME
OUR HISTORY
Rutland Lumber Company, founded in 1956, is a third generation
family-owned hardwood manufacturing business located in the south-
central Mississippi city of Collins. Following in the family tradition of his
grandfather and father, Leslie Rutland continues the Company’s
commitment to exceed our customers' expectations before and after
the sale.

Beginning operations over 50 years ago as a small circular sawmill,
the Company has grown and diversified into the present business
offering a wide range of hardwood products.  Employing the most
technologically advanced machinery currently available, we currently
produce kiln dried, air dried and green lumber of Red Oak, White
Oak, Poplar and Ash species for use in moldings, architectural mill
work, furniture, cabinets, flooring, and numerous other industrial uses.
Our sales, production, quality control and customer service work
together in our single location to closely monitor each order and to
insure that the Company continues its 50 year commitment of
exceeding our customers' expectations before and after the sale.

A sister company, Superior Mat Co., manufactures, sales and
leases a wide range of mats for most construction applications.  

Another affiliated company, Rutland Timber Company,
purchases standing timber from local land owners for use in our
sawmill, and also manages the Company owned timberlands
industries.
Rutland Lumber Company and each of our related companies promote conservation of natural resources following the
principles and criteria for forestry management recommended by
Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), Forest
Stewardship Council (FSC) and The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA).  We are committed to the
responsibility of the environment and our world’s forestry lands.
