  • Neiman Begins Upgrade Program At Gilchrist

Neiman Enterprises is upgrading operations as it restarts the Gilchrist Forest Products sawmill in Gilchrist, Ore. that Neiman acquired from Interfor last September.

The sawmill is replacing a dated Inovec Dynavision M6 scanner with a new USNR trimmer optimizer and scan frame fitted with a BioLuma 2900L scanning system, as well as a new USNR optimization system for an existing end dog carriage system, providing full 3D imaged solutions. To complete this round of capital expenditure, the mill will also install a new USNR Stick-N-Fork Stacker system.

  • Biewer Orders Two Cranes From Fulghum

This is the second time Biewer has made the decision to go with a 170 ft. Fulghum crane, as the company has been operating one for over a year at its Newton, Miss. sawmill site. The Winona mill is scheduled to be operational by early 2022.
