I've heard that in the USA, some sawmills only "saw" with a separate business entity running the kilns on the same site, or just adjacent to it. If true, this makes sense as the saw miller can focus on what he does best, and so can the dryer.... possibly a perfect symbiotic relationship?
I am busy drawing up a proposal for a small "wet-off" processing plant to build kilns on their site and dry all their timber on a contact basis. (± 2000m3 /month , 850 MBF / month)
Can I ask that people reading this thread give me their inputs, and motivations why this is a good or bad idea. Much appreciated
