ATLANTA - GeorgiaChron -- AHC Hardwood Group announced that Mike Mooney has joined the company as Director of National Sales. Mooney will oversee sales operations for the Midwest, Southwest and Western United States. With more than 25 years of experience in the building products industry, Mooney is an expert in market entry, new product introduction and brand development.

AHC Hardwood Group made a tactical move over the course of the past five years to increase capacity by 300% to meet the growing demand for value-added secondary manufacturing. Mooney is charged with expanding the distribution footprint as part of the increased focus on the production and sale of these products.

Previously, sales in the United States were heavily focused throughout the Southeast and along the East Coast.  With Mooney's leadership, AHC Hardwood Group will be increasing market presence in areas where there has formerly been limited exposure.  Having successfully driven growth and innovation in past roles, Mooney's strategic vision and expertise in developing markets for value-added products aligns seamlessly with AHC Hardwood Group's mission and values.

In recent years, AHC Hardwood Group changed business models from a lumber yard-focused product group to the manufacture of customized and specialty products.  As the largest manufacturer and distributor of cypress siding in the United States, the company has expanded its offering of specialty products to include thermally modified exterior siding and decking, cabinet and furniture components, shiplap and nickel-gap siding, window and door parts, solid-plank flooring, and more than 1,000 moulding profiles. Mooney will be leveraging his industry knowledge and customer relationships to deliver a new message for the group that pivots from lumber yard sales and focuses on value-added products.

Atlanta Hardwood, along with AHC Hardwood Group, has grown significantly over the course of 72 years, transforming from a single drying yard to a world-class manufacturer. According to AHC Hardwood Group president, Hal Mitchell, "The ability to adapt and innovate has been key to our success, and with Mike's leadership, we are confident in our continued growth and market expansion."
