September 21, 2022: Market Stability Still Requires Vigilance
Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. They provide their perspectives on their experience at BCMC in Columbus, Ohio. Both guests agree the market is very stable right now, with small disruptions like announced mill curtailments and the threat of a rail strike barely causing a ripple. That said, there are still pockets of rapid movements within certain species and grades that underscore the importance of remaining engaged in the market. 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.
