Ohio Valley Veneer

"Simply The Best"


OVV was establish by Edward and Carol Robbins in 1990. The Robbins' started in the timber business with a logging crew and decided to expand with the purchase of the Jasper, Ohio sawmill. This family-owned and operated mill has been handled by three generations. It was previously owned by Ed's Father, Bill Robbins, and his grandfather, Art Barker. The Barker family had several family-owned sawmills that date back to World War 2 to Ed's great uncle Floyd Barker, who produced lumber for the government during the war. His grandfather Oval Montgomery was also a logger back when mules were the only equipment used to move logs and where Bill Robbins got his start as a young boy.

In 1999 the Robbins expanded with the purchase of a second sawmill, located on US 23 in Piketon. Ed Robbins installed three Wood-Mizer LT 300 mills and produces only Walnut lumber at this location today. In 2003, he started Ohio Valley Chipping, a chip mill located in Greenup, Ky. Here the wood is chipped by a Morbark 83" four-knife chipper, then is loaded onto barges and shipped on the Ohio River to Hawesville, Ky. This mill produces 120,000 tons of chips annually. OVV expanded again with the purchase of the Crownover mill located in Peebles, Ohio in 2010. This mill operates with two Innovec Stero Scanners, 2-8" band head rigs, and a Cleereman 42 LP carriage for the production of 12 million feet annually.

OVV continued to expand throughout 2009 and bought their corporate office on St. Rt. 124. The mill saws around 12 million board feet annually with two head rigs with a resaw. OVV continued to expand throughout 2014 with the Tennessee Mill in Maynardville Tennessee, sawing strictly walnut logs. This operation produces around 2 million board feet of lumber annually. In 2015 OVV purchased Midwest Timber (Jasper) located right down from the corporate office on Jasper Road. The operation saws 4 to 5 million feet of lumber annually with an 8ft heading and a resaw installed inside of their state of the art sawmill. OVV expanded one more time with starting up Ohio Valley Stave, making whiskey barrel staves, they are located right off US 23. OVS makes their staves for Speyside located in Jackson, Ohio. OVS produces 30-32 packs of staves per day. Ohio Valley Veneer, is expanding throughout the Ohio Valley region more and more each year.
