|Nelson Wood Shims was founded in 1960 by Wilbert Nelson. Prior to starting the shim business Wilbert made his living for many years as a carpenter on the Iron Range in northern Minnesota.|
Having used thousands of shims in his career, he was unsatisfied with the inconsistent quality of the shims in the market. He decided to make an improvement and started his own business. Nelson strived to make a true shim - consistent in width and length and feathered ends. The Nelson shim was an instant hit with contractors and lumberyards.
Though Wilbert is no longer with them, his tradition lives on. Nelson Wood Shims is still making the
same true shim in a variety of sizes and styles. Their shims are cut from top quality pine and coniferous from North America and around the world. They test them for the proper moisture content then inspect them for quality and function before they will put the Nelson name on them. Nelson Wood Shims is the largest shim manufacturer in North America. Their state-of-the-art high volume facility, produces quality products for distribution nationwide.
