Part of the beauty of Anderson hardwood
is in the rustic hand-scraping, pebbling,
wire-brushing, and other industry leading
textures we offer. Many products
are crafted by skilled artisans—and
no two boards are the same. Anderson
hardwoods are truly custom floors.
Unique to the Anderson story is the fact that most
of the company’s hand craftsmanship is performed
within the Anderson Prison Work Program. Located
in state correctional institutions in South Carolina
and Tennessee, the voluntary work program is
centered on rehabilitating the lives of prisoners by
teaching a trade and the value of hard work. Prisoners
are paid a prevailing wage, which is divided among
the state and victims, with the remainder going
to the prisoners’ families. The highly successful
program has proven to reduce the rate of recidivism.
