Direct Pricing is the Key to our Business Model
We set up TrailerDecking.com on the premise that our customers didn't want to pay
any unnecessary mark-ups to brokers and wholesalers who don't add value to the transaction.
We buy all our material directly from the manufacturers overseas, we inspect it ourselves, and
we don't use brokers or wholesalers to get the job done.
We have our own offices in Indonesia and in Brazil. All of our logistics are handled from the
point of origin and we work hard to get our customers the best deals available in terms of
quality, lengths, and transportation costs.
The Founders of TrailerDecking.com
Our business unit is part of Nova USA Wood Products, a international leader in tropical
hardwood decking and flooring, as well industrial products. Steve Getsiv
started TrailerDecking.com in 2009 with help from John Buchanan, a longtime customer of Steve's.
John passed away in October 2010 but he was instrumental in helping the company establish initial
contacts in Malaysia and Indonesia.
After working for several years as a logger and surveyor, John obtained a degree in forestry
from the University of California at Berkeley. John spent many years working and traveling throughout
Southeast Asia and then worked in both the import and export lumber business. John had extensive knowledge
of the truck flooring business and worked in the Apitong business for most of his career.
Steve began working in the truck flooring business in 1987 and then spent 18 years working in
various capacities from purchasing and quality control to sales and marketing. Steve started Nova USA Wood Products
in 2005 in partnership with his best supplier in Brazil, Nova Forest Products SA.
We set out to build an outstanding international trading company, specializing in wholesale
flooring and decking. See our main web site for for details at www.novausawood.com.

Our Web Site and Business Philosophy
We created this web site so that we can work with our truck trailer customers as directly as possible. We believe in sharing
as much information as possible about our products: where they come from, how they are made, the scientific
properties of each and every wood species we sell, technical drawings and more.
Our pricing philosophy is simple: we import directly or we work with key trading partners who import and hold stocks
for us. We buy as competitively as possible, based on our years of experience,
and we pass the savings on to you.
Any feedback you can offer will no doubt help us improve the web site and our business.
