Burns, Tenn.—American OEM has expanded the Hearthwood distribution group to Charleston, S.C.-based William M. Bird. This is the latest distributor to bring on the company’s brand, serving the Southeast market beginning in June.
William M. Bird has a long legacy of excellence and integrity since their founding in 1865. “We are proud to partner with a company that, like Hearthwood, has such deep roots in the industry,” said Randy Schrecengost, vice president of sales, American OEM. “The Bird company values of fair play, hard work, and caring for customers and employees makes them an ideal distributor of the Hearthwood products.”
The Hearthwood collection is comprised of 24 enduring engineered hardwoods, made at the American OEM facility outside of Nashville, from 100% American hardwoods. The company’s flagship brand continues the four-generation legacy started by Andy Anderson, the inventor of the American engineered wood floor, in the 1940s.
“Hearthwood is a way to honor our family’s 70-plus year history in the wood business,” said Allie Finkell, executive vice president, American OEM. “It leverages the vast experience of our past but is packaged in a modern way that appeals to a younger, predominately female demographic. It’s an honor to partner with William M. Bird.”
