Years of Experience

McGinnis Wood Products Promotes a Green Lifestyle

Environmental sustainability, waste reduction and recycling are fundamental practices at McGinnis Wood Products, and have been since the 1970s.  There is nothing that goes to waste. All of our off fall has a purpose. Green sawdust is used to fire our boiler system, generating steam for our steam tunnel and heat for our eight dry kilns. This saves thousands of gallons of diesel each year.  Other companies use our remaining wood chips and sawdust as raw materials for their products.  McGinnis Wood Products is a member of the Missouri Forest Products Association, whose mission is to encourage wise use and conservation of our natural resources.

McGinnis Wood Products makes barrels for some of the country’s top-selling bourbons. McGinnis also ships barrels to Japan, Spain, Scotland and other locales worldwide.
