San Group has purchased the former Chalwood Forest Products mill, which had been shut down for more than a year. San Group rehired 100% of the former staff and has invested into the reconfiguration of the mill with new machinery and technology that will help optimize its operations.
San Forest Speciality mill starts its operations. The mill is now strategically positioned as a value added specialty mill designed to seamlessly flow into San Group's vertically integrated business model. Production capacity of 35 mmbf producing dimensional lumber is for global export.
San Group of Companies has had its roots in the lumber industry since 1979. During this time the company has evolved from a small lumber remanufacturing facility to a multi-level forest products corporation.
