The Pacific Coast Wholesale Hardwood Distributors Association was founded in 1924 in San Francisco as a cooperative effort to promote fair business practices and communication between wholesale hardwood distribution companies along the West Coast. Born out of the boom following the 1849 Gold Rush, the Pacific Coast hardwood lumber industry had grown substantially by the first decades of the twentieth century. The resulting competition could have created animosity within the industry, but it was recognized that success occurred as a direct result of cooperation.
