Mississippi Lumber Manufacturers Association (MLMA) was originally organized in 1954 as the Mississippi Pine Manufacturers Association to promote the sale and use of southern yellow pine lumber produced by Mississippi sawmills. In 1978, the name was changed to Mississippi Lumber Manufacturers Association to include both hardwood and southern yellow pine mills. MLMA’s hardwood mills are now an integral part of its membership.
MLMA mill members include responsible manufacturers of quality southern lumber, both pine and hardwood, representing all lumber production sections of Mississippi. Associate membership includes business-related companies and suppliers, lumber wholesalers and lumber producers in others states. MLMA members contribute to the economy of their local communities, the state and nation by providing jobs and products. They play a leading role as good citizens through scholarship and award programs and in the conservation of renewable natural resources.
