The Bingaman Story

Owners Chris Bingaman, Dean Heintzleman and Max Bingaman

The Bingaman story began in 1938 when Carson Bingaman added Appalachian hardwood lumber to the product line of his general store to service the mining industry. Now an ESOP company with over 200 employees, Bingaman Lumber consists of five locations – the main lumber yard in Kreamer, PA, a second lumber yard in Clarendon, PA, and three hardwood sawmills strategically located throughout the state. We have grown from a single-person operation to an international hardwoods manufacturer that can ship logs, lumber and value-added wood products to any region of the globe.

The BING label assures customers around the world that they are receiving consistent, high-quality hardwood products from Bingaman & Son Lumber, Inc.

With three locations across PA producing nearly 25 million board feet of green lumber products per year, the Bingaman Sawmill Division is uniquely qualified to meet your hardwood needs. We offer a full array of PA hardwood species, providing our customers with the finest quality green lumber in a variety of thicknesses, along with veneer and sawlogs. We also produce cant, tie and pallet material, as well as chips, sawdust, bark mulch and pole wood.
