Biewer Lumber Company, with corporate headquarters in St. Clair Michigan, has announced they are in the process of developing and building a new state-of-the-art sawmill to be located in Winona Mississippi. The new sawmill is expected to be completed and operational by January 2022. Biewer currently operates a sawmill in Newton Mississippi, which was completed in 2016, and the new Winona sawmill will be modeled after the Newton facility. The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) played a key role in site preparation and rail/road improvements. “The growth of companies like Biewer Lumber in Mississippi sends a strong message that our state has a supportive business environment and a skilled workforce,” stated Governor Tate Reeves. “Biewer Lumber’s construction of a new sawmill in Winona is a testament to that fact.” In response Tim Biewer President and CEO of Biewer Lumber said, “My family’s passion for the lumber industry has prompted this expansion in the south. There is no better place to grow the business than the fiber-rich state of Mississippi”.
