This Successful Specialty Manufacturer was recently spun off from its parent, a large railroad equipment engineering and manufacturing business, but has been an operating division for 24 years. The business engineers and builds a proprietary, dependable, and cost-effective wood milling machine along with a complete set of accessories, including belt conveyors, sorting conveyors, infeed and outfeed systems, step feeders, knife sharpeners, and log handlers to reduce rough timber to highly marketable posts, beams and dowels in multiple sizes. Besides its proprietary product line, the shop also provides Custom Machining and Repair Services for other Montana manufacturers. Its operations have been ISO 9000 certified for the past 10 years.
