Welcome To Our Brazil Lumber Mill

AdvantageLumber.com® owns one of the largest hardwood lumber factories in Northern Brazil. AdvantageLumber.com® has operated in the South American lumber supply chain for over 20 years. We manufacture flooring, lumber, and hardwood decking in species such as Ipe, Cumaru, Tigerwood, Massaranduba, and more. Many companies deceptively state that they control the process and own a South American facility, but we actually own the land and the machines. We own the entire process. We openly invite customers to tour any of our facilities. Before you purchase lumber elsewhere, request to inspect their inventory and observe their physical production facilities.

The Brazilian facility is proving to be a game changer for the hardwood lumber marketplace as AdvantageLumber.com® is directly controlling the supply chain from the forest to the jobsite. This allows us to offer even better selection, quality, and volume pricing.
