Haavaldsrud Sawmill Resumes Production
As of Monday March 27, 2007 the sawmill resumed production on a one shift basis in order to test equipment and bring the production line up to full capacity. Reconstruction efforts will be continuing for some time but meanwhile additional production shifts should be coming on line by next week.

Haavaldsrud Sawmill Reconstruction Updated Completion Date
Delays in the reconstruction project have made the initial start-up date of January 28, 2007 unobtainable. The rescheduled date for start-up is now March 12, 2007. The company and the project managers are making every effort to insure that this is achieved.

Haavaldsrud Sawmill Reconstruction Update
Reconstruction and refurbishing efforts are continuing at our sawmill facility that was damaged by a fire on July 11, 2006. The target date for the resumption of production on our Chip & Saw line is January 28, 2007. Below are some photos taken during the week of November 19 to 25, 2006 showing the state of the project at that time. Currently a top priority is to replace damaged metal support beams and the roof and wall panels. In the meantime critical components have been sealed with tarps for protection from the elements. Check back for further updates.

Sawmill Damaged By Fire
a result of the damage we at Haavaldsrud Timber Company have had to suspend
all sawmill and woodlands operations until repairs to our production facilities
can be completed. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our
employees and customers for their understanding and patience during this
difficult time. We are committed to keeping the length of this disruption
to a minimum. We would also like to thank both the Hornepayne and White
River Fire Departments for their courageous efforts and the Town of Hornepayne
and others for their support.
