Sticking With It

MT. HOLLY, Arkansas – Centered in south Arkansas, Anthony Timberlands (ATI) has eight manufacturing plants in the immediate region – including sawmills, a composite facility and a flooring mill. While ATI might be known by some for its large-scale pine operations, the diverse company puts just as much emphasis on its hardwood operations.

Another Jewel In The Crown

Acquired in October 2013, the Anthony Oak Flooring (AOF) facility in Magnolia completed a diverse portfolio for the Arkansas-based wood products titan Anthony family. But as Chris McQueen, who serves as Vice President of Anthony Oak Flooring – one of the biggest customers of Anthony Timberlands’ hardwood sawmill, says, timing hasn’t always been the company’s “thing.”

Saw Skills Drive Frank Lumber 

Article by Dan Shell, Senior Editor, Timber Processing

MILL CITY, Oregon – Investing in its filing room and overall mill facility, Frank Lumber in western Oregon’s Santiam River canyon has made a commitment to quality lumber production for the long term. Filing room investments in the past five years and a current small log side upgrade are placing the company in good competitive stance and solidifying its market position as a top premium lam stock producer.

Under the leadership of brothers Jim and Dennis Frank, the sons of founder A.J. Frank, the company has been a major part of the community’s economic “timber engine” for decades. A.J. founded the company in 1936 at a nearby location and moved it to its present site in Mill City in 1955. Frank Lumber’s commitment to the community has only been strengthened since the tragic fires of August and September 2020 as it has played a key role in the region’s recovery.
