Our History

Founded in 1960 by John Rayda and Eugene Sutter, RAD Engineered Wood Products has been producing high-quality hardwood truck floors for more than five decades. Rayda eventually became the sole owner of the company and grew the business through the 1960s. He developed a hook joint called the “RadLoc,” which is still used in the industry today.

In 2012 RAD was acquired by a new group of investors who recognized it was a long-standing company with a strong brand and high-quality product. Current ownership is committed to the original values and quality that helped define RAD and grew it into the industry leader it is today.


Unmatched Quality

The RAD name is synonymous with quality. We inspect every inch of flooring produced so that our products speak for themselves.

60+ Years of Experience

We’ve been delivering best-in-class solutions for the trucking industry for over 60 years, continuing to develop new products and innovative ways to produce them.


We proudly source our lumber locally and our flooring is 100% made in the USA which offers superlative sustainability and reliability.

Customer-Focused Approach

We put our clients first and prioritize their needs when managing orders as well as providing follow-on supply chain solutions.

Our Location

RAD Engineered Wood Products is centrally-located in the heart of the Appalachian hardwood-growing region in Nescopeck, PA. This puts us in the neighborhood of dozens of sawmills, concentration yards and lumber brokers that supply us with the high-quality raw material we demand for our customers. This proximity to our suppliers enables us to closely follow trends in the lumber market, purchase lumber at reasonable prices and keep shipping distances down — a cost and environmental saving that benefits our clients.
