THE MARKKET is a division of Kendrick, Inc. which is a family owned and operated lumber company located in the Northeast Iowa community of Edgewood.
SAWMILL: We began doing business as Kendrick Forest Products in 1983 as a logging and sawmill company with 12 employees sawing just 700,000 bf per year. Today, production is over 10 million bf per year and there are over 90 employees working in all areas of the company. Today, the sawmill is the largest sawmill in the state, producing Walnut, Red Oak, White Oak, Hard Maple, Soft Maple, Red Elm, Grey Elm, Hickory, Ash, Cherry, and Basswood that grows abundantly in the hills of of this Northeast Iowa region.

CABINETRY: In 2001 Kendrick, Inc. purchased a small cabinet company and relocated it to our Edgewood facility. The cabinets are manufactured in Edgewood and marketed to the Northeast Iowa area, however clients have stretched as far away as Milwaukee, St Louis, Chicago, Kansas City, Minneapolis, as well as Florida and North Carolina. Our design staff are experienced professionals that work directly with the consumer to give them a kitchen that is both stylish and functional.

SHIMLEE: In the spring of 2017 shimlee.™ was started. shimlee. is an internet based printing company that prints photographs onto “real wood” and ships all across the US. What sets shimlee. apart from others who print on wood is, shimlee. prints on wood waste from our sawmill, Kendrick Forest Products and is truly a recycled product. Shims are the waste product that come from the side of the log when you start the sawing process. These shims are then dried in our dry kilns and processed in our cabinet plant, before being assembled by our shimlee. team. At shimlee., we use the industry’s best equipment to ensure a high quality product. Your photos are printed using ECO-UV ink to produce high quality graphics that are durable, vibrant, and beautiful. shimlee. is also marketed to photographers across the US.
