Interfor Corporation has entered the niche premium board market with the launch of its new top-of-the line Reserve Pine products, turning its Gilchrist Mill in Oregon into a world-class specialty mill.
“We have invested millions of dollars to equip our Gilchrist Mill with the most advanced finishing system in the world, putting it on the map as a leader in the one-inch premium board market,” Steven Hofer, Interfor Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, stated. “With Reserve Pine, we are building value for customers by providing a high-quality product with an impeccable finished look and feel.”
Reserve Pine boards are sourced from some of the best Pine stands in North America, and manufactured to Interfor’s exacting standards. Since 2004, the Company has invested more than $15 million to upgrade its Gilchrist Mill, including $5 million in the last year to install a Weinig H5000 high-speed moulder and precision planer heads. This state-of-the-art equipment provides the accuracy needed to deliver a superb finish quality on both the faces and edges of Reserve Pine products.
Interfor is working with strategic partners to distribute Reserve Pine products across North America, including Boise Cascade, Forest Products Supply/FP Supply, Midwest Lumber, Neiman Reed Lumber, Parksite Inc., Universal Forest Products and Weyerhaeuser.
