The Hickman Family started Allegheny Mountain Hardwood Flooring in the year 2000, but we’ve had generations of experience in the hardwood industry. In 1938 Harry Hickman Jr. started the saw mill with a crosscut saw and a team of horses and it grew from there. The original Hickman Lumber Company still operates today and is the prime source of material for our flooring plant as well as serving dimension lumber markets throughout the United States and the world.
Before our current flooring facility was outfitted for producing quality hardwood floors it was a hardwood lumber dimension plant with the company name of Mill Creek Hardwood Dimensions. That company existed for a short time in the 80s and into the 90s until the furniture market disappeared. During that time we perfected the art of milling rift & quarter sawn hardwood flooring for our main furniture clients, Stickley & the Japanese.
As the world changed we realized that we needed a value added product of our own. That’s when Denny Hickman, third generation family member, was able to convince his father, Larry, that hardwood flooring was a developing market and he could easily retool the dimension plant to produce premium quality solid hardwood flooring. Timing was right with the housing market boom and quality rift & quarter sawn hardwood flooring was scarce and in demand; it’s the flooring needed above radiant heat! The rest is what you call… history.
At Allegheny Mountain Hardwood Flooring we are able to maximize the yield from the lumber. Working with our parent company, Hickman Lumber, we have control of the lumber from the individual tree in the forest to the finished boards. From the choice of the logs to how they are cut, dried, and milled all add up to a better quality product… a better quality floor.
We’re not the oldest or largest manufacturer of hardwood flooring, just the best. Our size enables us to deliver the quality, choice, and service that professional installers around the country have come to trust for problem-free, award winning installations every time.
