Binderholz Celebrates Enfield Sawmill Opening

Binderholz Enfield LLC held a grand-opening in April to commemorate the official opening of its lumber production facility near Enfield in Halifax County, NC. Company, local community, and elected officials participated in the event alongside Binderholz’s corporate leadership from Austria.

The Enfield facility will produce southern yellow pine lumber used in residential and commercial construction. At full production, the plant will have an output capacity of over 200MMBF.

In January 2021, Binderholz acquired the assets of Klausner Lumber, which included production mills in Live Oak, Fla. and Enfield. Despite a pandemic and lingering supply chain issues, Binderholz was able to upgrade the Enfield manufacturing plant to their standards and meet state and local permitting requirements.

“We appreciate the support from Halifax County and the Enfield community during very challenging times,” commented Matteo Binder of Binderholz. “We have worked hard to get the facility operational and now we must shift our focus to getting employees to achieve full production.”

The company started as a small sawmill in Austria more than 70 years ago and grew into a multi-national company with 60 sites across Europe.

“This is a major milestone, not only for Binderholz, but for Halifax County,” Halifax County Board of Commissioners Chairman Vernon Bryant said. “We are grateful to the company for their commitment to Halifax County and we look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.”

The Enfield production facility will further strengthen Binderholz’s presence in the United States market. The Binderholz Enfield plant is forecast to have 120 full-time employees by 2024. The hiring process will continue until the lumber mill reaches full production capacity.
