The joining of forces is said to solidify USNR’s leadership position in providing equipment and technology to the global wood processing industry. Timber Automation, which is based in Hot Springs/US, has more than 250 employees and over 200,000 square feet of manufacturing space.
The acquisition will help Timber Automation gain wider market distribution for its state-of-the-art sawmill and woodyard equipment. USNR on its part will profit from Timber Automation’s highly-skilled employees and production capacity. “The addition of Timber Automation’s LogPro line of log yard equipment represents a major market expansion for USNR. Their Baxley products, which include optimization, edgers, and lumber processing machines, complement our product range, providing our customers with more options of high-quality machinery,” Dale Brown, president of USNR, said. “We are also excited to build upon the VAB division’s highly innovative optimization and grading solutions and the opportunity to bring those products to new markets.”
“This partnership will help give us provide better solutions for our customers”, John Steck, president of Timber Automation, added.
