May 12, 2023: Market Steady as it Goes
Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. Both guests agreed that with supply remaining above demand, the current just-in-time lumber purchasing behavior continues to dominate the market. The near-term outlook is much of the same, but current levels may prompt mills to consider further curtailments. 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.
