Team Commitment and Dedication Drives Success

Last year proved to be a difficult year for many sawmill operations. But the team at Clendenin Lumber seemed to once again rise to the occasion.

Clendenin Lumber is a location of Baillie Lumber Co., located in Donalds, South Carolina. They specialize in the production of green and kiln dried hardwood lumber with the primary species sawn being red oak, white oak and poplar.

Clendenin SawmillIn 2016, the team in the Clendenin sawmill surpassed 20 million board feet of production for the first time in several years and the first time ever as a single shift operation! This was despite the fact that for the first 90 days of the year production was below target due to lower than expected log decks.

“You have to hand it to the team”, said Matt Fisk mill manager. “From the end of rainy season in March through the fourth quarter of the year, our employees worked 50 and 60 hours per week to help meet production goals.”

During the year the Clendenin sawmill focused intently on the creation of standard 4/4 grade lumber and various industrial grade hardwood lumber products.

Two industrial grade products that were a significant focus for the mill last year included hardwood timber mats and hardwood cants. The timber mats produced at Clendenin come in various lengths and are predominately available in an 8” thickness. The hardwood cants produced also come in various sizes and are available both green or kiln dried.

“Last year’s success would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication of the men and women on the team. You really have to hand it to all our employees, they are true professionals.” said Mr. Fisk.
