Lumberyard Replacing NC Sawmill
(April 21, 2017) T.E. Johnson Lumber Co., Four Oaks, N.C., will continue to hold a milling equipment auction tomorrow April 22, although the facility recently reopened under new ownership.
Michael and Angie Blinson purchased the remaining inventory and opened Southern Woods Lumber in the sawmill’s former office and two of its warehouse buildings. No manufacturing will be done on site.
The staff includes Juan Garcia, Patricio Ramirez, Javier Teniente, and salesman Ross Barefoot.
The Johnson family idled the sawmill last month, after more than 70 years of operation.
