Baillie Lumber Offers Expanded Ripping CapabilitiesHAMBURG, NY  --  Baillie Lumber, a premier provider of hardwood lumber solutions, has expanded their ripping capabilities allowing for the development of higher volumes and more customer specific solutions of full-to-width custom ripped strips. Baillie’s ripped hardwood lumber program spans across their entire specie lines, grades, thicknesses and lengths available.

Manufacturers across the entire industry, from cabinetry to flooring, can realize the benefits of ripped-to-width strips to increase yield and production while decreasing waste. With the additional expansion of our ripping capabilities in Smyrna New York, we now maintain two facilities that provide custom rip solutions for our customers.

Baillie Lumber’s hardwood ripping products are offered in one of three ways:

The first is a custom two edge ripping program which consists of custom grade solutions designed to a customer’s specific requirements. These special grades decrease waste and maximize the amount of usable surface area per load. 

The second is a random width parallel edged program, which can prove to be a more productive alternative to traditional straight line ripped one edge lumber, offering flexibility and choice of edge in the manufacturing process.

A third offering is ripping as a service where Baillie Lumber will rip a load of lumber to a specific cut bill, supplementing our customer’s own rough mill capabilities with our state-of-the-art ripping equipment.

Baillie Lumber’s ripping programs focus on improved productivity, increased yields with reduced waste while achieving savings in overall production processes for our customers.
