Bacon Veneer is not what happens when your breakfast meat spatters all over the kitchen. Bacon Veneer, the common name for R.S. Bacon Veneer Company, produces and imports decorative and architectural quality specialty veneer products for distribution to architectural, automotive, and other industries. The company also buys and sells logs from such species as American walnut, maple, white oak, rift red oak, birch, African cedar, aspen, and cherry. It has offices in the US (North Carolina, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, New York) and in Alberta, Canada. Robert S. Bacon and his wife Julia founded Bacon Veneer in Chicago in 1898.
