The U.S. subsidiary of Austrian lumber giant Klausner Group is planning to build a 700 million board ft./year sawmill in North Florida, Euwid reported on July 30.

Few details have apparently been released, but Euwid said the sawmill was to be built by Klausner Holding USA near Live Oaks in Florida’s Suwannee County.

The lumber output will come from two separate sawing lines.

Founded in 1991, the Klausner Group is headquartered in Oberndorf, Austria, close to the Klausner family‘s first sawmill built in 1918 (closed in 1996), the company’s website states.
