April 14, 2021: Get in Front of the Lumber Market to Come
Justin Binning, Ken Timmins and John Vranizan with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. Justin and Ken observe why the lumber market will continue to trend upward and lumber availability will get more difficult as mill order files get longer. All three also explore ongoing transportation challenges that will get worse before it gets better. Justin has been with AIFP since 2010 with a focus in Southern Yellow Pine and Ken has been with AIFP since 2017, specializing in Fir species. Both specialize in high grade lumber for the component manufacturing industry. John has been president of AIFP since 2011 after 21 years as an award-winning trader at the company.
