BATH, N.H. – Britton Lumber Co. plans to expand its eastern white pine sawmill facility in Bath in August 2022. The 30,000-square-foot mill currently produces approximately 9-million board feet annually.
The planned addition will include an additional 6,500-square-foot structure, which will be built onto the existing sawmill and will include a new optimized linear edger, an unscrambler, and new belt conveyors and transfer decks.
The new edger and equipment from McDonough Manufacturing will replace Britton’s existing 35-year-old manual edger that is a significant bottleneck and the most labor-intensive position in the sawmill, the company says.
Britton Lumber expects an increase in production of approximately 5%. The project is expected to be completed and operational by the end of 2022.
