30 June 2017
The new Two Rivers Lumber sawmill, which broke groud in January, is set to be up and running in Demopolis, Alabama by September 1, 2017. But with over 95% of the machinery installation done, the BID Group is ahead of the projected timeline and is looking to have the mill in full production sooner, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The Demopolis sawmill will feature state-of-the-art technologies specifically designed, supplied, and installed by the BID Group, including a Comact optimized log bucking system, a Comact saw line with profiling systems, and a fully-automated mill outfeed.
The planer mill will be equipped with the new, and now proven, Miller high speed planer, and the latest Comact GradExpertTM 2.0. Lumber drying will utilize continuous kiln technology provided by two Deltech dual-path kilns.
Alistair Cook, BID Group President & CEO, said: “The BID Group thanks Two Rivers for the opportunity to supply and install the Demopolis sawmill, as well as the opportunity to establish a strong relationship with both Two Rivers and the community of Demopolis.”
