About Us

Summit Wood Industries, Inc. was founded in 2000 as a wholesale, millwork manufacturing company. After more than a decade of business, our desire to find a creative use for sawdust, our by-product at the time, and an interest in alternative energy, led to the purchase of our first wood briquetting machine. What started as a side-line business in 2009, has become our primary focus today. 

Additional briquette machines have been installed to meet the demand for BIO BLOCK® Firewood. Our recycling program has also expanded, contracting with local companies to procure sufficient sawdust for our increased production. These contracts keep waste out of landfills, and provide other businesses income for their waste stream. 

BIO BLOCK Firewood is available in hardware, grocery, and hearth stores, as well as lumberyards.

It is rewarding to hear testimonials from customers who burn BIO BLOCKS, and have come to rely on it as a clean, convenient alternative to firewood.

In June 2012, Summit Wood was honored to receive The Wooster Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award.

Gary and Victoria have been married for 32 years and enjoy working together. Gary oversees the manufacturing facility. and Victoria handles sales and marketing.

It is our goal to continue to offer high quality products, made in the U.S.A., that are beneficial to the consumer’s lifestyle and budget.
