As a result,Bennett Lumber is able to inventory lumbersomewhat more heavily than othersmight simply because Bennett knowsfrom season-to-season and year-to-yearwhat its longterm customers will purchase.Jim Vandegrift, sales manager atBennett Lumber, said, “We have noproblem maintaining that inventory at themill in order to ensure we meet the(Left) Bennett LumberSales Manager JimVandegrift is picturedwith a 1x8 board of RedCedar.Bennett Lumberʼs highly recognizeable paperwrap protects all the companyʼs productsin transport.

Ifyou want good, clean, bright Ponderosastock, buy it in the Inland Northwest.“We were down a little this year in Cedardecking, just because of overproductionfrom some of our competitors. Thatstymied the pricing structure so at thatpoint, we chose to gear more of our productioninto the Cedar boards, asopposed to 5/4 Cedar decking.”Structural PanelsThe Bennett Lumber sales team of Jim Vandegrift and Bob Jahns are pictured infront of Ponderosa Pine Selects.Vandegrift added that the pricing structurethis year has not afforded them flexibilityto produce any 2x12 lumber thisyear in White Fir or Fir/Larch but Bennetthas offered 2x4 through 2x10 products.Bennett produces predominantly 6/4Ponderosa Pine in Shop and Mouldingfor the window and door manufacturers,some 4/4 in Selects through No. 4Common in 1x4 through 1x12, and occasionallysome 5/4 Shop.Bennett Lumber introduced its ImperialCedar product last spring, and it isgeared toward customers who utilize No.3 and Better. Imperial is shipped in thesame Bennett paperwrap as the rest ofthe companyʼs products. “We take agreat deal of pride in the Bennett logo,and Imperial is in the same wrap that wedo everything in,” Vandegrift said.Historically, Bennett Lumber has producedsignificant amounts of patterns,and today they continue to do so.Vandegrift noted, “Our value-added patternproducts in both Pine and Cedarserve our customers well. We do all standard1-and-2-sided patterns and weʼredoing more and more of that as peopleare utilizing mill direct as opposed to puttingit into a remanner to have patternproduced. Itʼs more cost effective, andmore efficient in the shipments.”Vandegrift compares Bennett Lumber toa “one-stop” custom shop. We donʼtstock pattern material, itʼs freshly run.We custom run it for the customer with aminimum volume of 5,000 board feet sothe customer doesnʼt have to purchase afull truckload.”Bennett Lumber delivers half packs inCedar, and delivers up to full packs inother wood species. “This flexibility helpsour customers manage their inventories,and makes shipping easier,” he said.Shipments overseas has slowed downfor Bennett Lumber over the past year.“Like everybody else, weʼve seen a littlebit of pullback in the export market,”explained Vandegrift. “The Mexican marketcontinues to be good for us inPonderosa Pine; Pakistan, China andVietnam have all slowed down for us.However, we are still moving wood, butnot at the volume we did in the past.”Bennett operates two shifts in its milland planer facility. “Bennett has survivedthrough the years,” said Vandegrift,“because weʼre a small, family-ownedbusiness in which our communicationsare so good – all the way from FrankBennett, our president, to the guy thatpulls the dry chain in the planer. Weʼreable to change fairly quickly to thedemands of the marketplace.”Key personnel, in addition to Vandegrift,includes: Frank Bennett, president andson of founder Guy Bennett; BrettBennett, vice president; Bob Jahns,sales assistant; Jan Dimke, secretarytreasurer;and Mitch Dimke, generalmanager of the Clarkston mill.Bennett Lumber is a member of theNorth American Wholesale LumberAssociation.For more information, visit online atwww.blpi.com and at the NAWLATraders Market, booth 419.•MEMBERPlease Visit Us atNAWLA Booth No. 419
October 2012 Advertorial Page 17Irving Forest Products Awarded Efficiency Maine Grant For Innovative Power Generation, Energy Efficiency ProjectsAugusta, Maine– EfficiencyMaine has awarded Irving ForestProducts a $471,000 incentive toinstall a kiln moisture control systemthat will save the companynearly 15% of their annual energyexpense – 3.2 million kilowatthours a year – or enough energyto power 530 homes a year.“The incentives from EfficiencyMaine will allow the mill to takeadvantage of low-cost energy thatwe otherwise would not be able toaccess because of high up-frontcosts,” says Division ManagerSusan Coulombe. “By reducingthe amount of electricity purchasedon the grid, the project willallow Irving to remain more competitive,and reinvest thoseresources in its people and operations.”The mill currently employs235 people.This is the second incentiveaward that Irving has won througha competitive program runthrough Efficiency Maine whereprojects are ranked on the basis ofcost effectiveness and projectreadiness. The first award was a$706,543 incentive for a steamturbine that reduced Irvingʼsdependence on grid-suppliedelectricity by 4.2 Million kWh.“Both projects will allow the mill tobe at 100% capacity,” addedCoulombe, “and thatʼs somethingthatʼs extremely rare in the forestproducts industry today.”“By reducing the demand for electricityby 6.5 million kilowatt hoursa year, Irving doesnʼt merely lowerits operating costs, but it lowersthe cost of electricity for all Maineratepayers,” says Ian Burnes,Business Program Manager atEfficiency Maine.Efficiency Maine issued an RFPfor its new Competitive Programlast September, inviting Mainebusinesses to compete for fundingof large electrical energy efficiencyand distributed generation projects.Funding levels ranged from$100,000 to $500,000 per facility,up to 50% of the total projectcosts.

Its durabilityand workability are proven throughoutthis region where homes continue to standstrong that were built with Eastern WhitePine in excess of 200 years ago.“At Mill Services, there has never been atime in which weʼve made a higher quality,better Eastern White Pine product thanright now.”Thatʼs a big statement, but one that Placecan back up with figures to prove his point.Mill Services has continuously flourishedsince Place and Holt bought the facility in2007. At that time, 38 employees staffedthe operations. Today, current personnelfluctuate between 62 and 70 and work oneshift, plus a “hybrid” shift that manufactureson Saturdays. Mill Services added six toeight employees last year and are on trackto do the same this year.“Weʼve been able to add personnel andequipment simply because weʼve gottenbusier,” noted Place.Mill Servicesʼ target market consists primarilyof wholesale distribution companiesand ships predominantly in the Northeastquarter of the U.S. No doubt they purchasefrom Mill Services because theyrecognize the attention to detail the companypours into its products, and especiallyits fingerjointing.“Fingerjointing has been around a longtime in the millwork business,” said Place.“Itʼs in all kinds of applications and thereality is that fingerjointing and themachinery associated with it has gottenbetter, as well as the manufacturingprocess.”Mill Services manufacturesfingerjointingin 2-inchthrough 12-inchwidths on a dailybasis, and has thecapability to produce14, 16, 18-inch wide boards asspecialty items.Place noted thatfingerjointing is 100percent clearbefore itʼs primed.“Itʼs defect-free,” hesaid. “Itʼs squareedged,no knots.Put one or twocoats of primer on itand itʼs ready to benailed up and painted.”Mill Services processes inthe neighborhood of 40,000to 50,000 board feet of EWPdaily, depending on width.

Weʼve also added a newWeinig Moulder in the last year to increaseour milling capacity and to provide a betterproduct.”Mill Services also added a planer in frontof its optimizing line and the planer “allowsus to buy more varied material from moremills,” Place explained. “We can buyrough lumber, sized lumber, wide lumber–awide variety– and we can mill it andsize it to exactly what we want, prior to itgoing into our scanning and optimizingline. Thatʼs a huge advantage. The betterthe product that we start with, the moreuniform and superior the product we willachieve out of the other end of the mill.Plus, we do it with more efficiency.”Mill Services also produces most traditionalNELMA patterns. “Although that isnot our main thrust because our equipmentis busy with fingerjoint,” Place said.“We do some custom milling for some customersand probably will always continueto do so as we have the time to do it. Thelast couple of years, one thing weʼve beenable to do is make panels up to 16-feetlong and 50-inches wide.”New sanding equipment, purchased withinthe last year, has made this new serviceavailable at Mill Services. “We donʼt producelarge volumes of panels but the additionof this product is exciting and serves amarket for us,” said Place, who added,“We have also added another ConceptionFinger Jointer, which allows us to doubleour fingerjointing capacity.”Mill Services primes with multiple coats4/4 and 5/4, 2-inch through 12-inch widthsat its priming plant. “We do a wide varietyof coatings, including one or two coats,”commented Place. “For some customerswe just use straight oil coatings, and forothers, we do a premier product, which isa latex over an oil coating. We have atremendous amount of flexibility in ourpriming.”Place added, “I think people have come tothe realization that White Pine hasremained strong, is a terrific specie and ithas actually grown in demand.

McKenzie is pictured with theBethel crew after a presentation, meal and Q&A session between the companyʼsemployees and their customer.Casco, Maine–Looking at the EasternWhite Pine sawmill business five yearsago and comparing it to todayʼs market,the landscape has changed dramatically.Similar to the entire forest products industry,what worked for customers in the pastno longer does today. Heightened customerexpectations have paved the wayfor Hancock Lumber to evolve their lumbermanufacturing. Kevin Hynes, COO ofHancock Lumber commented, “Today ourbusiness and investments are built aroundbeing flexible for our customers and providingthem with the products and servicesthat they need to be successful in thismarket.”Hancockʼs Casco mill near completion of a new dry kiln that was scheduledto be operational mid-August. The expenditure shows commitmentfrom Hancock to build in drying capacity to continue to improve the consistencyin drying Eastern White Pine for their customers.Gone are the days where customersordered truckloads of random length,2,000 board foot packs of one, maybe twoproducts. Mixed loads abound with ordersconsisting of various package sizes,including random and pulled to length,with complimentary replenishment systemsmeeting “just-in-time” inventorydemands. Jack Bowen, VP of sawmillsales emphasizes Hancockʼs commitment:“Weʼve adapted to meet the changingneeds of our customers. Our flexibilityin providing diverse products, packagingand grades has been the key to servicingtheir markets.”Competition from other species andcountries including New Zealand, RadiataPine, PVC trim, and cement board sidingsadd pressure to produce better qualityEastern White Pine boards. From drying,milling, grading and packaging, allaspects that effect appearance and consistencyhave improved. “We have anincredible resource in Eastern WhitePine. Other products seem to come andgo but Eastern White Pine has, is and willbe here for the duration of time due to itswonderful qualities and our ability toshape this resource to the changingneeds of the marketplace,” Matt Duprey,VP of Sales states.Duprey continued to describe howHancockʼs Casco Planer Mill expansion/upgrade. The firmʼs investmentto automate all its controls, end stamping, tally system andextended sorting capacity, along with a value recovery station forclear fingerjoint blocks was driven by the millsʼ customer base needfor further increasing flexibility, accuracy and quality.Hancock Lumber operates with a verysimple business model, “We stay in frontof all our customers and constantly askthe question, ʻWhat can we do to makeyou and your customers more successful?ʼThen, we listen carefully and make ithappen.” Following this importantapproach has helped the Hancock organizationfocus its time, energy and capitalresources directly on these customerspecific initiatives. In the last five years,80 percent of Hancock Lumberʼs capitalimprovement projects has been gearedtowards being more flexible and making abetter product.Each of Hancockʼs three mills are nowset up with Weinig moulders and are ableto produce a wide variety of pattern products,with quick turnaround times. “It isvery common for our customers to rely onour flexibility in our pattern facilities torequest special orders and additions toexisting POʼs for pattern product that donot effect the delivery time,” Bowennoted. “We know how important it is forcustomers to get what they need, exact toorder. We know our customers are underpressure to perform as well and our collectivebusiness depends on doing whatwe say and delivering what they want.”Knowing how critical every board is toboth our success and our customersʼ,Hancock Lumber undertook a major initiativeto deliver on the promise andexpectation that “Every Board Counts”.“Our goal is to make every board meetour customersʼ expectations for quality.Delivering on this promise has meantbringing this concept home to everyemployee at Hancock Lumber. We need100 percent buy-in on this. So many individualemployees determine the finalproduct quality, everyone needs to bealigned and working together to make ithappen,” Hynes commented.Hancock Lumber has fully embraced theconcept of making every Eastern WhitePine board count. Customer visits to themills is a monthly practice now. MikeHalle, Finished Products Manager at theBethel operations, stated, “There is nobetter way for our employees to understandthe current reality and the needs ofour customers than hearing it directlyfrom them. Customer mill visits are one ofthe best things we have done to drivebusiness and our employees haveresponded.”Continuous evolution and processimprovement to produce better qualityboards will always be a core philosophyfor Hancock, enabling them to competesuccessfully in the global marketplace.“We have embraced the challenge togrow in this market. Exporting hasallowed us to grow as a flexible manufacturerwith a great product into many partsof the world where quality is really appreciated,”Hynes said.Established in 1848, Hancock LumberCompany is one of Americaʼs oldest andmost distinguished family-owned companies.Today, the company employs 200people in its Casco, Bethel and Pittsfieldmanufacturing facilities.

October 2012 Advertorial Page 27COLLINS COS. Install “MegaMill” And Receives Maximum ResultsBy Wayne MillerThe Collins Cos.: The first name in FSC-certified forest products.Richwood, W. Va.—Purchased by TheCollins Companies seven years ago, theCollins Richwood Hardwood mill manufacturesRed Oak, Ash, Hard and Soft Maple,Poplar, Basswood and Cherry.Situated on 27 acres, the mill has a 20 millionboard feet annual capacity. Facilities include asawmill, dry kilns and a planing mill. Lumber isavailable in 4/4 through 12/4, rough or surfaced.Continuing to innovate equipment and operatingmethods, Collins latest installation to thislocation is its “MegaMill.”“The “MegaMill”, as coined by the crew, is acomplete lumber processing center,” GeneralManager Ernest Lake explained. “It includestwo tilt hoists, auto stick collection, a Lucidyneboard reading system, double-end trimmers,dry lumber stacker, Yates-American B-26planer, and a packaging station. One Tilt hoistfeeds product to be sold rough and the secondfeeds the planer and is used for surfacing.”According to Lake the idea and research forcreating the MegaMill was extensive, but oncethe plan was “in-motion”, completion of theproject was time-efficient. “This new buildingis 300 feet long by 80 feet wide. So we torethe old office down, moved into some temporarytrailers and started the process.Installation began in June of 2011. We movedinto the new office in December. Differentparts of this mill were started up in January2012 and by March everything was up, runningand online.”Lake continued, “Collins bought variouspieces of equipment. Some of it came from upNorth, some out of Pennsylvania, some fromout West, some from Oregon, and parts of itwere built new. Combined, this state-of-the-artlumber processing center gives us the abilityto put out a quality package of lumber that issecond to none.”As he explained how the lumber isprocessed, Lake noted that the grading stationis a highlight of the operation. “Ourgraders have a grading table and stationwhere they can readily see the lumber. Itʼs litup so that theyʼre not grading in the dark.Everything is double-end trimmed. It comesdown to an automatic stacker where itʼsstacked and side squeezed. Next itʼs endcoated and banded. And finally, itʼs stenciled,end tallied, tagged and ready to go.“Our sorting system, which can do up to 30sorts, gives us the ability to pull out specialtyitems for width, color or whatever else weneed to do,” he continued.“With a half million board feet of kiln capacity,we have 10 dry kilns. Six of the kilns werehere when we became a Collins mill and fournew ones have been added,” said Lake. Thefour new dry kilns are manufactured by SII DryKilns, located in Lexington, N.C. “We alsohave two Irvington-Moore kilns and two drykilns by BOLDesigns, Inc.”Collins sources timber within a 60 mile radiusfrom this location and has foresters on theground at this location. “We have threeforesters and one Procurement Manager thatoversees them. Basically they have all been inthe business for an extensive amount of time,”he said. The company contracts with loggingcrews.“This sawmill was built in 1965 and the equipmentin it has been modernized and upgraded.We have a Corley carriage with LewisControls, which was in there when the CollinsCompany bought it,” Lake added.“When CEO Eric Schooler first came herePictured is Steve White, sales manager at CollinsʼRichwood, W.Va., mill.also a NHLA Inspection Schoolgraduate and he ʻisʼ quality controlhere,” said Lake.As for logistics of the product,Lake said Collins uses contractcarrier trucks and containers. “Weload flatbed trucks for domesticorders and containers for export.”Collins exports containers from theport of Norfolk, Va.Operating at about 48 hours aweek, Collins employs approximately55 people at the Richwoodlocation. “We work four 10-hourshifts and one 8-hour shift,” LakeCollinsʼ “MegaMill” in Richwood has been guided by GeneralManager Ernest Lake.explained.Collins Richwood Hardwood millmarkets its products primarily towith the Collins Co., we installed a slabber.Then we bought another, smaller edger thatwas manufactured by Reckart Equipmentthat first fall in 2005. In the spring of ʼ06 weinstalled the new Brewco twin horizontalresaw in the mill, which totally transformedthe mill.”manufacturing distributors in the cabinet,moulding and millwork, furniture and flooringindustries. “About 25 percent of our productgoes to the industrial grade users such as thepallet and box manufacturers,” Lake noted.“We also market a small portion to wholesalers.”Among the many measures Collins takes to The Collins Cos., headquartered inensure a consistent, quality product, Lakesaid quality control is a sizable part of theprocess. “We have mill supervisors constantlychecking the thicknesses that come out ofthe mill. The inspectors watch it and if theysee a problem they converse with production.When it comes to the kilns, the kiln operatormonitors material as it dries, performstests and makes sure it dries properly. Whenit goes into the MegaMill to be loaded, theinspectors re-inspect it. Jimmy Thompson isPortland, Ore., is well known for their sustainableForest Stewardship Council certifiedhardwood and Softwood products. Perhaps aless likely known aspect of this family-ownedoperation is their dedication to the forest as arenewable resource.“We are the true tree huggers,” Lakeoffered. “We love trees.

Our Southern Pine sawmill islocated 15 miles southeast of El Dorado.The three-phase project started in the first quarter and willcontinue through the fourth quarter. Phase one was thebuilding of a new dual path continuous dry kiln and theretrofitting of an existing kiln to a dual path kiln. The newkiln is producing and the retrofit kiln was completed in mid-September.Phase two of our modernization is a new planer mill andbuilding which started up on July 5th. The new Coastalplaner machine comes from Washington state and is capableof running over 2000 linear feet per minute. After planing,all lumber is measured by an in-line moisture meter andthen is hammered to determine its MSR rating. The MSRrating is then sent electronically to the Comact GradeExpert grading machine where a visualgrade is identified and lumber is trimmedto length by a Baxley trim saw. Grademarks are applied by a Signode ink jetprinter and lumber is sorted in a 60 baysling sorter and then packaged in twostations.Phase three will concentrate on thesawmill. We will add a third Corley headrig with two new high-speed Baxleyedgers. Production from the sawmill istargeted to 150 million board feet a year.The sawmill modernization will start inmid-July.Our overall goal with the modernizationproject is to provide our customers withhigh quality Southern Pine lumber invisual and MSR grades. We will squeezemore value out of each log by focusingon highly efficient computerized machinecenters, cost cutting, just-in-time deliveryand exceptional customer service.“In lean times in the building industryyou have to become more efficient andwhen the market turns, we will do betterin leveraging those efficiencies,” statedAubra Anthony, CEO of Anthony ForestProducts.
