The Hardwood Market Report marks its 100th year in 2022.
“Reaching the century milestone is a rare accomplishment for a business,” said Judd Johnson, managing editor. “It is something to be acknowledged, admired, and celebrated.”
The Hardwood Market Report is rolling out a special monthly publication and planning other activities to highlight the 100-year mark. It also plans to participate in national, regional, and state industry association meetings as it has in the past, though with more representation attending events in 2022.
“Adapting to everything life throws at you for 100 years becomes even more remarkable when looking back at those circumstances from a historical perspective,” said Johnson. “But our celebration is not really about the past. It is about the future. We want to share with our customers how HMR is positioned to begin the next 100 years and how HMR, as an information company, can help hardwood businesses and allied companies succeed.”
Based in Memphis, Tennessee, the Hardwood Market Report provides information focused on the hardwood lumber industry. The company has a global reach through its three publications and digital domain. The flagship weekly publication provides benchmark pricing and market commentary on North American hardwood species.
