John A. Biewer Company, headquartered in St. Clair, Michigan, announced that earlier this month it had shipped the first truckload from the company’s newest sawmill located in Winona, Mississippi.
The Winona facility is Biewer’s second facility in the South. When fully operational, it will have an annual production capacity of an estimated 250+ MMBF.
Commenting on the new Winona facility, Tim Biewer, President of John A. Biewer Lumber said, “We have had a great experience with our mill in Newton, Mississippi, which began operating in early 2016, and we were able to implement enhancements to the design to improve efficiencies in Winona.”
The latest Biewer southern facility will be led by the fourth generation of the Biewer family, Tim’s son Blake Biewer. Commenting on the new facility, Blake said, “It has been very rewarding to be a part of this state-of-the-art facility from the start, and I am excited for the future of our company.”
Biewer Lumber is a fourth-generation, family-owned group of companies that includes five sawmills, three treating and distribution facilities, and a full-service logistics company.
