Expanding White Pigeon Facility

Posted Sep 20, 2013 by Banks Staff

It’s an exciting time at our White Pigeon, Michigan facility. An expansion project is currently underway that will ultimately enable more production flexibility. A new green lumber staging shed will better protect green lumber from sunlight, prior to being placed on sticks.

We are moving one of our existing air sheds to make room for seven new 30 thousand board-feet dry kilns, and construction is also underway on two new air sheds. The new kilns will add flexibility for drying smaller charges of thick stock, as well as smaller charges of off-species stock for special customer requirements. We are looking forward to the completion of this project, tentatively set for the end of this year
