New Hampshire Mill Plans Expansion

This August, Britton Lumber Co. will begin expanding its eastern white pine sawmill in Bath, N.H.

The 30,000-sq. ft. facility produces approximately 9 million bd. ft. annually. The planned addition will see a new, 6,500-sq. ft. structure built onto the existing sawmill, which will include a new optimized linear edger, unscrambler, and new belt conveyors and transfer decks.

The new edger and equipment from McDonough Manufacturing will replace a 35-year-old manual edger, which is a significant bottleneck and the most labor-intensive position in the sawmill. While no jobs are being created or eliminated, a key component to the mill upgrade is to improve workflow and create safer and more desirable jobs.

Britton expects an increase in production of about 5% and that the project to be completed and operational by the end of 2022.
