Darlington Veneer Company rebrands after 100 years in business
Darlington Veneer Company, a third-generation family owned, hardwood plywood mill located in Darlington, has ushered in their next one-hundred years with a new look. Now simply referred to as DVC, the company has chosen to place the emphasis of their brand on hardwood plywood in an effort to clarify their role in the hardwoods industry.
Founded in 1918 by Sherman Ramsey as a single ply veneer mill and plywood manufacturer, the company has, over the course of time, changed their business model to no longer include the peeling and slicing of wood veneers in-house. The veneer lathes ceased operation in the 1970’s and from that point forward DVC became strictly a hardwood plywood mill. Still referred to as Darlington Veneer Company, the company celebrated its one-hundredth continuous year in operation in April of 2018 and this September, officially launched their new brand name.
“DVC is a business with a long history, not only in the town of Darlington but nationally and globally,” said General Manager, Pat Lynch. “As a company, we feel that this new branding will continue the momentum that has been set by the Ramsey family and generations of employees that have worked to make DVC the industry leader that we are today. We look forward to what the next one-hundred years hold for DVC.”
