LUFKIN, Texas – It is not a stretch to think of a greenfield startup as a well choreographed ballet. There are many players, a new stage and everything must follow the same beat, everyone leans on the veterans to help show the rookies what to do, and in the end something a little magical happens.

RICEBORO, Georgia – Looking to expand in North America, DS Smith, a European-based corrugated packaging leader, purchased Interstate Resources Group in 2017, including the longstanding kraft linerboard paper facility in Riceboro. DS Smith was attracted to the Riceboro mill because of its virgin pulp fiber and proximity to the Port of Savannah. The deal also included adjacent RB Lumber, a timbers production sawmill, and affiliated timberlands.

Article by Jessica Johnson, Senior Associate Editor, Timber Processing

LUFKIN, Texas – It is not a stretch to think of a greenfield startup as a well choreographed ballet. There are many players, a new stage and everything must follow the same beat, everyone leans on the veterans to help show the rookies what to do, and in the end something a little magical happens. A greenfield sawmill isn’t exactly magic, especially in the U.S. South these days, but it is still a modern marvel. For Angelina Forest Products (AFP) Mill Manager Wiley Quarles, the magic was not in tying his vendors together, or watching the engineers do their thing, it was in the promise and realization of jobs in his community. A native of Angelina County, Quarles has spent his career working in corporate mills throughout east Texas. The chance to be a part of an independent 270MMBF sawmill startup is always exciting for lumbermen, but Quarles says this just felt a little different.
