The story of world timber corp.
World Timber Corporation was founded by Joseph Steinbach in 1984. His career in the lumber business started in 1967 working for a large Lumber co. in New Jersey, starting out his first day learning how to grade and measure 300,000 feet of Teak (which took over 3 months) working the dry kilns, band saw, veneer saws and working orders. He started to travel in 1970 for Teak, Philippine Mahogany, and East Indian Rosewood. Joe then became Manager of Jersey Facility in 1977.
In 1978 he left the Jersey Facility for a chance to operate a new Facility to expand their import and export sales of exotic woods. By 1984, Joe figured he had the experience and contacts through out the world to start his own foreign and domestic lumber company. Starting out in Easton, PA, Joe and a good friend Edward Mast started selling, purchasing, and traveling, the two of them doing everything that needed to be done. Business was prosperous and a warehouse was leased to store kiln dried lumber. After years of toil and tenacity Edward Mast unexpectedly passed away in 1994. In 1995 and 1996 were a few years of new employees and new ideas.The Full Story
