USNR has completed the acquisition of Mid-South Engineering Co., the leading consultant and provider of engineering services to the wood products industry in North America, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
In order to further develop USNR’s turn-key capabilities and processes, USNR has promoted Jeff Stephens (formerly President of Mid-South) to the position of Senior Vice President at USNR, with responsibility for leading USNR’s turn-key offerings worldwide. In this new role, Jeff will oversee both USNR personnel and key resources drawn from the Mid-South organization.
Mid-South’s longtime Vice President and CFO Marc Stewart has been appointed to replace Jeff Stephens as President of Mid-South Engineering.
Although Mid-South Engineering is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of USNR, it will continue to operate as a separate business in order to preserve the company’s ability to act as an independent advisor.
USNR operates four large manufacturing plants in the United States, Canada, and Sweden. USNR is best known around the world for providing endto-end solutions for sawmills and planermills, including log lines, curve sawing gangs, edger lines, trim-sort-stack systems, dry kilns, and the optimization and control technologies that maximize the output and performance of that equipment.
