USNR, a division of Wood Technologies International, has acquired Timber Automation, an industry leader in sawmill equipment and technology. The deal adds more than 250 employees and more than 200,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space.
“The addition of Timber Automation’s LogPro line of log yard equipment represents a major market expansion for USNR, and their Baxley products—including optimization, edgers, and lumber processing equipment—complement our product offering, providing our customers with more options of high-quality machinery,” comments Dale Brown, President of USNR. “We are also excited to build upon the VAB division’s highly innovative optimization and grading solutions and the opportunity to bring those products to new markets.”
“We knew that USNR was the right owner for Timber Automation from the outset,” says John Steck, President of Timber Automation. “USNR’s reputation for doing right by the customer aligns perfectly with our company culture and values. This partnership will help give us wider visibility and provide better solutions for customers.”

Wood Technologies International was created through the simultaneous acquisitions of USNR and Wood Fiber Group.
