Most viewed this week: OSHA cited two smaller-sized wood products firms - 12 employee Burch Wood Products and 42-employee custom cabinetry firm Integrated Laminate Systems, Cinnaminson, NJ and 12-employee Burch Wood Products, Summit Point, WV. The citations and fines on the two totaling $97,000 were part of a national emphasis by OSHA one reducing amputations and a general effort to target accident.
Also highly viewed were news from the contract and casegoods furnishings show NeoCon, including Haworth's announcement it would acquire Legacy Furniture to expand its footing in the growing healthcare market, a fire at a wood pellet factory under construction, and a $1.25 million judgement against Broyhill Furniture.
American Wood Pellet Company's plans to make product in a 112-year-old
mill which once made shoes, were put on hold when a massive fire
gutted the building as it was being renovated.
