June 7, 2021: Take Advantage of Lumber Opportunities

Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. Transportation continues to be a major stumbling block for getting available lumber through the pipeline to the manufacturing facility and the jobsite. Demand is still very strong, and mills have made more material available, through some products like MSR and web stock can still be difficult to find. They suggest there may be an opportunity ahead and now would be a good time to be active in the market before the next surge occurs. 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.
