Back in the 1930s, founder Bill Cockrall operated a sawmill on Cleveland Street in downtown Nashville. As business grew, he expanded with two additional mills on the city’s outskirts. Word of the Appalachian timber spread and its demand required a move to our current 22-acre location in Burns, Tennessee. Since becoming a family-owned business in 1985, we successfully pushed MTL to become one of the most diversified hardwood companies marketing lumber, flooring and mouldings across the US and internationally.
