The quality product the company delivers to itscustomers begins with its log suppliers. Log suppliers are valued partnersin ensuring the best grades for the markets that the companyserves.The focus of the open house is a complete mill tour, usually given ingroups of 10. Experienced mill employees serve as tour guides for theevent. Irving Forest Products feels that it is very important for its log suppliersto understand what happens to their logs once they get deliveredto the mill. Feedback is always positive as suppliers learn and understandthe process. In return, the educated suppliers are better able tomeet the mill’s need for well prepared, quality sawlogs.Along with the mill tours there are log scaling demonstrations, logpreparation demonstrations, lumber product displays, and chainsawmanufacturers who display the latest equipment.One of the highlights of the day is a barbeque lunch served up by themill staff.May 9 th , 2008 delivered perfect weather for the event. After lunch,numerous door prizes were given out, ending the day.The open house is a perfect way to bring log suppliers and mill employeestogether for a day of fun and education. A good time is always hadby all.Log suppliers are valued partners in ensuring the best grades for the markets that the J.D. Irving Limited serves.•A New CedarDimension For J.D.IRVING LIMITEDSaint John, N.B.–J.D. Irving, Limited purchasedthe Baker Brook operation fromBowater in 2006. This mill was originallydesigned and updated to efficiently produceSPF stud lumber in 10-foot and shorter lengths.Facing a softening SPF market and identifyinga need to consolidate Cedar production at onelocation, the company switched over the loginventory and began producing Cedar in Aprilof 2007.The Baker Brook site, managed by MarioDesjardins, is comprised of a sawmill, planermill, and dry kiln. The sawmill has a daily outputcapacity of 90,000 FBM on Cedar. “Ourbiggest challenge was taking a highly optimizedmill set up for high output production andmaking the necessary changes to produce aproduct that is graded based on appearancerather than structural integrity,” saysDesjardins.The centerpiece of the mill is the Comact DDM10, which suits the Cedar log sawing patternswell as the species inherently produces logswith lots of sweep. Recovery and capturinggrade are made possible in the mill with theBrewco horizontal resaw and 65 bins on thedrop sorter. “Our operation is extremely optimized,which allows us to get the best recoveryfrom our log resource and produce the gradeneeded by the customer,” said Desjardins.Once sawn, the Cedar product is passedthrough the Yates A20 planer, then regraded,and piled to meet customer demands.With close to 16,000,000 FBM of forecastedproduction in 2008, the sales team of JohnRussell, Sales Manager, and CharleneOuellette, Open Market Sales, are constantlylooking at new products and markets for Cedar.“We began 2008 with a sales plan that hasevolved to include many new customers andwe have reached into new geographic markets,”says Russell. The Cedar business hashistorically focused primarily on the seasonalproducts related to fencing and log cabin homecomponents. “With such a large production, weare looking to take some of the seasonalityaway from our business to ensure a strongfencing market and help diversify our productmix.”Currently, the Baker Brook operation produces1-inch boards and 2-inch dimensional productsaimed at the fencing sector along with 4x4through 6x8 squares directed to the log homeindustry. Future plans include developing retailboard programs and utilizing lower grade productin value-added applications such as barrelsand planters.“We have a solid, highly motivated team workingat the site,” says Ouellette (Open MarketSales), “and, with a positive attitude, we haveseen continuous improvement in our resultsand this contributes to success in the longterm.”For more information about J.D.

It hasbeen said that in comparing buildingmaterials, Red Cedar is as distinct asdiamonds are to other gemstones, dueto its outstanding appearance, durability,dimensional stability and insulationvalue. For these reasons, manufacturingRed Cedar products is a veryhands-on process as compared to producingcommodity 2x4’s and 2x6’s.Hands-on quality starts with selectingtight-knot, second growth Western RedCedar logs for specific products andgrades in a full range of Red Cedarproducts. From there, the logs aresawn into lumber at one of two Mary’sRiver fully integrated sawmills situatedin the Western Red Cedar region ofCoastal Oregon and Washington. TheOregon sawmill at Philomath is in theCoast Range west of Corvallis. Here,the lumber is converted to kiln-dried,rough-cut lumber on state-of-the-artequipment designed specifically to millRed Cedar for optimum quality. Therough-cut lumber is transported toMary’s River’s finishing/shipping facilityin Corvallis to be milled into siding,boards, paneling, decking, fencing anddimension in a wide variety of gradesand sizes. Shipping operations arelocated close to Union Pacific’s mainlineand I-5 for quick shipment by rail ortruck. Washington operations are locatedat Montesano, where all facets ofmanufacturing are performed at onelocation. The operations complementeach other to provide flexibility in productmix, quick response to customerinventory requirements, optimum efficiency,and competitively provide customersthe Western Red Cedar theyneed with on-time delivery.Mary’s River’s skilled craftsmanshipand innovation provides the quality andthe unique appearance that sets its sidingapart from composites that try tocopy the appearance of Western RedCedar. An innovative solution to dryingis the custom dry kilns, designed for theoptimum conditioning of Red Cedar.“Our computerized dehumidifying kilnsallow us to produce superior kiln-driedbevels for markets requiring dry bevelsiding,” says Don Dye, sales manager.Brad Kirkbride, president, adds, “Ourproduction facilities and procedures arecontinuously evaluated to manufacturesuperior Western Red Cedar more efficiently.The result is a top-quality productthat is competitively priced.”Mary’s River’s siding is available inbevel, channel, and tongue & groovepatterns. Knotty T & G siding, with itsoutstanding texture and rustic appearance,is the cornerstone of production.When Western Red Cedar is coatedwith a solid-finish oil stain, it makes ahandsome statement in almost anyarchitectural style. Mary’s River sidingis ideal for the home center market withend-caps and bundled packaging.Mary’s River offers a full selection ofall natural Western Red Cedar decking.Tight-knot, second growth timber isselected to produce the beauty of naturalwood decking with stability, durability,and weather resistance. Decking isThe Washington operations for Mary’s River Lumber Co. are located atMontesano, where all facets of manufacturing are performed at onelocation.available in 5/4 x 4, 5/4 x 6, 2 x 6 with3/16” radius edge and 2 x 4 and 2 x 6with eased edges. Decking is availablein even lengths only from 6’ to 20’.Western Red Cedar boards and fasciaare manufactured with the same attentionto quality as Mary’s River’s otherSTK and Clear products. Boards andfascia are offered in 1”, 5/4” and nominal2” depths and nominal 4” through12” widths, with rough sawn or S1S2Efinishes. Quality control recognizes thatits Standard and Better boards areused in fascia, trim and board and battenwhere excellent appearance isessential.The company’s Oregon sawmill at Philomath is in the Coast Range westof Corvallis.In today’s surging “green” market,Western Red Cedar is a natural choice.Mary’s River WR Cedar comes fromfast growing, abundant, second-growthforests where 95% of the tree is used.The branches, the remaining 5 percent,are left on the forest floor to biodegradeinto rich compost for the next generation.Compared to concrete compositesand plastic substitutes, WR Cedar productionhas the lowest energy consumption,is non-hazardous to handle,and is totally biodegradable and renewable.Mary’s River is an industry leader inWestern Red Cedar due to its commitmentto customer satisfaction, innovationto stay on the cutting edge in qualityand production, community involvement,and a safe and healthy environmentfor its employees.
