Two privately held Texas-based companies, Angelina Forest Products (AFP)and McCoy’s Building Supply, celebrate the initial production of southern yellow pine dimension lumber from AFP’s new Angelina County, Texas sawmill.
Angelina Forest Products state-of-the-art greenfield sawmill began construction in the fall of 2018. The new facility with two shifts, will employ over 135 direct employee jobs and many more indirect jobs that will supply and support the operation. The mill will produce southern yellow pine dimension lumber which includes 2×4 through 2×12 lengths 8’ to 20’. Angelina Forest Products (AFP) will be one of the largest sawmills in the South and its products will be easily identified with Mill #33 and the AFP logo stamped on each board.
McCoy’s Building Supply, is a 4th generation, privately held family-owned business that began in 1927. “It is very appropriate for our first shipment of lumber to go to their Lufkin store,” stated Stephen Raley, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Angelina Forest Products.
“Our companies are very similar in the demand for quality, exceptional service and respect for our employees and vendors. We look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with McCoy’s,” added Raley.
Angelina Forest Product’s Lufkin sawmill has a design capacity of over 300 million board feet annually and will provide products for single and multi-family dwellings, outdoor living, repair and remodelling as well as industrial end-users.
