Stave Mills

Independent Stave Company's process begins by selecting only the highest quality oak sourced from the premier forest regions of Central France, the Vosges and the American Midwest. These forests produce straight and very fine-grain oak and the company employs the industry's most experienced log buyers while managing over 15 log yards. Most importantly, this means our clients receive the highest quality oak.

Following careful selection, the oak is processed into staves at one of the company's state-of-the-art mills in Europe and the U.S. Today Independent Stave Company is the largest, and most quality-focused, stave mill operation in the world. With six highly efficient stave mills around the globe, the company services our wine and bourbon cooperages as well as other international cooperages. Mill facilities are located in:

Salem, Missouri
New Florence, Missouri
Salem, Indiana
