June 16, 2022: Availability Causing Short-term Cost Stability
Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. As buyers continue to keep inventories low, both guests say there is plenty of activity in the market and deals take some effort to find. While high-strength products may be open to correction, web stock may have bottomed out. The best news is material is now widely available and can be delivered in a timely manner. 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.
