Hatton-Brown Expositions LLC announces that the next Timber Processing and Energy Expo (TP&EE) will be held September 25-27, 2024 at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore. The 2024 show will be the sixth biennial TP&EE to be produced since 2012 by Hatton-Brown Expositions, LLC, an affiliate of Hatton-Brown Publishers, Inc. and of Timber Processing, Panel World and Wood Bioenergy magazines. All of the TP&EEs have been held at the Portland Exposition Center. (The 2020 event was canceled due to the pandemic.)
More than 1,200 representatives of 112 wood products producer companies and hundreds of individual lumber, veneer, plywood, engineered wood products and wood pellet mills registered for the 2022 TP&EE. They viewed 170 exhibitor companies who displayed their equipment and technologies in a sold-out Hall E.
While the show has traditionally emphasized lumber manufacturing, the 2022 event revealed increasing attendance from the veneer, plywood and EWP industries. And since the 2022 show, several announcements have emerged indicating a growing wood biomass industry in the Northwest, including several planned wood pellet facilities. This means that the 2024 event should truly live up to its Timber Processing & Energy Expo billing! Meanwhile several lumber and plywood mill expansion projects are in the works, such as Sierra Pacific Industries in Eugene, Ore. and Roseburg at Coquille, Ore. and Riddle, Ore.
TP&EE drew personnel from 112 wood products producer companies in 2022.
“We realize that the city of Portland continues to receive negative publicity for various reasons, but in the end the Portland Expo Center remains the best site because of its spacious equipment staging and move-in capacities—compared to other facilities we’ve looked at—as well as its centralized location for the Northwest forest products industry,” comments Show Director Rich Donnell. “The Portland Expo Center, after coming through the pandemic, is again filled with events all during the year. And just across the Columbia River only a few miles north from the show site is the ever-bustling city of Vancouver, Wash., where more exhibitors are hosting hospitality events after the show.”
The 2024 first stage of the TP&EE exhibitor space renewal program has begun. For exhibitor information, contact Jessica Johnson: [email protected].

Some of the smartest men and women in the industry have graced the pages of this magazine—and have won the award of Timber Processing Person of the Year. They’ve all been incredibly worthy of this recognition for innovation, commitment and love of the industry they serve. Perhaps none have been quite as innovative as the introverted sawmiller from Georgia named Levi Anderson Pollard, V, whose name is on two of the patents that changed the way the sawmilling world manufactures and dries lumber (and on so many other patents as well).
Walter Jarck, whose career in the forest products industry spanned 65 years and ranged from logging machinery to engineered wood products, died January 3, surrounded by his children, in North Wilkesboro, NC. He was 92.
Carbotech Group has acquired Sawquip, a manufacturing company specializing in the design and manufacture of sawmill equipment for the primary and secondary breakdown of logs into lumber. This acquisition allows Carbotech Group to add on a new field of expertise, providing customers with innovative new solutions for lumber production. Sawquip’s innovative products include log turners and optimized log infeeds, chipping canters, twin and quad circular saw modules, as well as optimized gangs for controlled shape sawing, among others.
Rob Freres, president of Oregon-based Freres Engineered Wood, a manufacturer of lumber, veneer, plywood and mass timber, has thrown in his support for a lawsuit filed by the Oregon Trucking Assn. and three Oregon-based trucking companies against the state of Oregon for overcharging truckers under the weight-mile tax.
