BID Group has recently received an order to deliver a second greenfield sawmill complex project, south of the border.

The order has come from Biewer Lumber in the southern United States. BID will manage, design, build, equip and provide full start-up services for the project.

“We have developed a great trust in BID team’s ability to go above and beyond to deliver what they commit to. Their dedication to our success is clear in all aspects of their performance. This has been evidenced through the course of two major successful projects together, including our first investment in BID’s industry-transforming mill design at our Newton, MS facility,” said Tim Biewer, president and CEO of Biewer Lumber.

The new operation will be fitted with BID’s leading product technologies, optimization software and artifical intelligence, as stated in a Jan. 14 news release.

The sawmill will also feature the new Compact Variable Tool Opening Debarker complete with in-line variable Flare Reducer, Cant Optimization system and TrimExpert, the release stated.

Work on-site will begin in the first quarter of 2021, and start-up of the sawmill is scheduled for Dec. 2021.

“We would like to thank Biewer Lumber for their ongoing trust in BID. We delivered our very first new generation greenfield lumber complex to the Biewer teams in 2016. Since then, we’ve delivered several similar projects. We are humbled and honored that Biewer has chosen to partner with us again for their next major growth investment,” said Alistair Cook, president and CEO of BID Group.
