PATRICK COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – On Wednesday, Gov. Ralph Northam announced that Ten Oaks, LLC — a manufacturer of high-quality residential hardwood floors — will invest over $9 million to construct a state-of-the-art hardwood sorting and stacking facility in Patrick County.

The new mill will allow the company to strengthen its supply chain, optimize yield on raw materials, and improve production quality and efficiencies while creating a major new market for Virginia’s hardwood sawmills.

The project is said to create 11 high-paying jobs and lead to the purchase of over $18 million of Virginia-grown forest products over the next three years.

“Ten Oaks’ expansion and continued investment is a reflection of Virginia’s thriving forestry industry. I am grateful to Ten Oaks for their commitment to providing new economic opportunities and valuable high-paying jobs to Patrick County.” 

Gov. Ralph Northam, (D-VA)

The company was established in 2004 in Stuart.

Since then, Ten Oaks has built its reputation on its commitment to quality.

In 2019, the company was acquired by Canadian-based Boa-Franc — a leading manufacturer of residential pre-furnished hardwood flooring.

The new facility is located less than five miles away from its manufacturing center and headquarters.

Lumber will be used to produce residential hardwood flooring.
