History: We’ve Been Around.
Way back in 1990. Indiana Dimension, Inc., IDI, was founded by Milt Cole and Roy Rentschler as a sister company to Cole Hardwood – our next door neighbor. They saw a need for a quality-focused and service-driven hardwood components producer that manufacturers could outsource to with confidence. Plus, they saw the big advantage of being located in the heart of the Midwest where some of the finest hardwood grows.
Bingo. They were right on both counts.
Today, IDI has over 20 years of experience producing hardwood components for wood product manufacturers nationwide. Just as important, we have produced solid relationships with our customers along the way.
