Biewer Lumber, St. Clair, Mi., has launched a new wholesale division, Biewer Trading, to “strengthen (its) relationships with both customers and suppliers, bridging the gap between the two entities.”
“The goal is to provide our customers with other mill options when needed,” explained Leo Colantuono, general manager of Biewer Trading. “For years our customers have been asking us if we could quote them on a number of additional products to fulfill their inventories, we were at a disadvantage with customers because we’re unable to offer this added service. Biewer Trading will allow Biewer to push business beyond our own product inventory and broaden our service offerings.”
Colantuono has spent a majority of his career buying and selling lumber for Biewer Sawmills.
Biewer Lumber currently operates five sawmills, three treating plants, and a full-service logistics fleet.
