Kiln Expansion Project to Bolster Sales out of Bowling Green, KY

The completion of recent updates to the green line at MacDonald & Owen’s Bowling Green, Kentucky campus created a more efficient facility, which is a win for M&O.  The higher efficiency of the green line quickly filled the air dry yard to capacity at 1.1 Million board feet and created an opportunity. This opportunity was the ability to increase overall volume produced at the KY facility. It was determined that this would be achieved by adding more kiln space on our campus.  Two new 55,000 board foot SII Kilns are in the process of being installed at the Bowling Green, Kentucky campus. The project is expected to take 10 weeks to complete with an anticipated completion date of February 28, 2017. The additional kiln space will increase lumber availability by an estimated 275,000 board feet per month.
