Committed To The Future of Wood
With over three decades of experimentation and innovation, Delta Millworks has gone from simply reclaiming wood, to leading the industry by using some of the best technologies in wood modification and tree farming practices available. We believe fervently in the future of wood, preserving the forests of our world, and providing pristine products to our clients. Sustainability in production is as equally valuable to us as the beauty and performance of our designs.
Tropical hardwoods (specifically, Ipe), are popular for their performance in exterior applications, but are sourced from highly sensitive regions such as the Brazilian rainforest. A large contingent of the material coming from those areas of the world are not only farmed under environmentally-damaging methods, but are also sourced through illegal and or controversial means. Tree farming and modified woods, such as Accoya® have made a historical shift in the availability of products that can perform for decades, and cause no harm to the environment in the process.
100% of Accoya® is sourced from FSC® certified sources
100% of Accoya® key materials providers are audited to confirm sustainable practices
Zero waste-to-landfill from Accoya® manufacturing operations
Provides end-of-life wood reuse, upcycling and energy generation programs
In 2020, Accoya® products saved nearly 70,000 tons of C02 (equivalent to 160,000 barrels of oil consumed)
54,603 tons of C02 locked into Accoya® products for decades
Awarded Cradle-to-Cradle Gold, with a platinum rating for material health
RECLAIM AND REPURPOSE
Delta began salvaging and repurposing longleaf pine over three decades ago, and we work with very same materials and processes today. Delta prides itself on sourcing quality material, meticulously de-nailing boards and timbers, and sawing and milling large timbers into uniquely beautiful finished products.
RESCUE AND REUSE
Delta’s line of interior cladding products utilizing dead-standing Beetle Kill pine trees from the Western U.S. and Canada. Beetle Kill Pine offers a rustic, blue-streaked cladding product in its raw, unfinished state. Once textured, burned and stained, the finish options become extensive and the natural “worm holes” in the wood only add to its distinctiveness.
