February 8, 2021  By BID Group

BID Group is pleased to announce it has received an order from Idaho Forest Group (IFG) to deliver its first greenfield sawmill complex project in the southern United States. In addition to managing the engineering, design, and construction of the facility through its integrated solutions team, BID will supply a complete range of industry-leading technologies and reliability services including OPER8, the only purpose-built Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution for the wood processing industry.

“We appreciate the opportunity to work with the Comact team on the integration of their Machine Center Design Expertise into our new mill in Lumberton, Miss. Their partner, BID Integrated Solutions, has a proven track record of coordinating the construction of sawmill complexes in the south. It is their combined success, intensity of focus and attention to detail that provides us confidence in their abilities to support our IFG team. We look forward to the contribution of the Comact/BID team as we continue to learn about operating in the south,” said Marc Brinkmeyer, owner and CEO of Idaho Forest Group.

“We would like to thank Idaho Forest Group for their trust in selecting the BID Group to be their partner as they expand into the U.S. south. The combination of IFG’s performance excellence and innovation coupled with BID’s services and technologies will deliver another industry leading facility. We are humbled and honoured to be a part of their growth,” said Alistair Cook, president and CEO of BID Group.

On-site civil work will start immediately with sawmill commissioning planned for December 2021.
