BID Group is pleased to announce it has received an order from Biewer Lumber to deliver its second greenfield sawmill complex project in the southern United States. Through its industry-leading, comprehensive Turnkey solutions offering, BID will manage, design, build, equip, and provide full start-up services for the project.

“We have developed a great trust in the 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, Miss., 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 artificial intelligence. The sawmill will feature the new Comact Variable Tool Opening (VTO) Debarker complete with in-line variable Flare Reducer, Cant Optimization system, and TrimExpert.

The planer mill will feature a Miller planer, Comact GradExpert with Artificial Intelligence, and the new SortPro lumber sorting software. The lumber drying will be performed with three DelTech continuous dry kilns.

“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 team 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.

Work on site will begin in the first quarter of 2021 and startup of the sawmill is scheduled for December 2021.
