Business Overview:

Third generation Saw Mill that was originally built to cut construction lumber, posts and long poles. In 2007, the owners purchased a pallet nailer to make use of short lumber and provide pallets for a local manufacturer. The pallet side of the business began to grow and now pallets are approximately 90% of the production. The mill continues to custom cut larger timbers and cants for local builders and has the only mill in the area capable of cutting timbers up to 26' in length. The owners of the business have developed a siding product called Chink-A-Log which can be produced with a third mill referred to as the planer mill included in the package.

Property Features and Assets:

The mill is located on approximately 23 acres adjacent to the major highway for the area and is adjacent to the boundary of the city. The mill is located in the county and water is provided by a privately owned artesian well and the business has access to the local municipal water supply. A large building houses the original big mill, a modern steel building houses the newer mill and pallet nailer including a newly installed slab recovery system which greatly increases efficiency and reduces waste. An older building houses a separate workshop and dryer for finished pallets. A newer steel building houses the planer mill. A smaller modern steel building houses the pellet mill and equipment storage, adjacent to the sawdust handling system which includes a dryer, grader, storage and loading hopper for the waste. Older building is used as a repair shop for the equipment including overnight parking and a separate saw sharpening shop with all of the equipment needed to recondition and re-sharpen saw blades on-site. There is an older open side building for large truck parking. The facilities include a scale, log yard, ample covered storage area for cut lumber, cants and a large yard for completed pallets and waste storage. The mill is located on a natural gravel bed, so wet weather is usually not a factor affecting production. The property contains plenty of room and ample building space to accommodate future growth. The package does not include the building currently used as the office. Sellers will work with buyer to locate a suitable pre-fab office or custom build a new office near the entrance on the property. Plenty of space to build a suitable office. Assets=$2,460,000

Market Competition and Expansion:

At this time the company does not have a full time sales person. The company responds to orders for their products. The company has invested in a high quality web site. Repeat and referral business makeup the bulk of the orders. No competition in the immediate area. Most pallet manufacturers purchase cut lumber from mills and are at the mercy of the producer. This company controls their production from the stump to delivery of the final product. This allows the business to minimize waste and cost by only cutting their lumber once. They do not have purchase standard size lumber such as eight foot 2X4's and re-saw the lumber to make it fit a pallet. The business controls the quality of the lumber which allows them to minimize warped or twisted boards which can delay production. As manufacturers continue to automate their production lines, the demand for high quality pallets continues to grow. Strong potential for growth in the pallet business. The business is located in a rural area, so transportation of the product to new customers is a consideration. Potential for growth includes additional production of construction timbers, producing cants for other mills, cutting stringers and deck boards for other pallet manufacturers, and the production of Chink-a-log siding. The Chink-a-log siding is currently manufactured in the planer mill. The planer mill can be re-configured to produce more pallet wood or other products. The planer mill is not in use at this time.
