Wood products provider launching new warehousing facility
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Collum's Lumber Products, LLC, a producer of dimensional lumber and other wood products, today announced the expansion of its Allendale County operations. Creating 10 new jobs, the company is investing $2 million to construct a new warehousing facility on the site of its existing state-of-the-art sawmill operation.
A fourth-generation, family-owned business founded in the 1930s, Collum's Lumber Products, LLC has become a leading competitor in the Southern Yellow Pine regional lumber market. The company has expanded over the years, developing one of the most modern sawmills and planer operations in the Southeast. Along with dimensional lumber, Collum's Lumber Products produces treated wood, poles, wood chips, biomass and remanufactured components.
Located at 1723 Barnwell Road, the company's existing Allendale, S.C. sawmill facility is optimized to ensure efficiency in the utilization of its resources. With an output of up to 200 million board-feet per year, the operation currently consists of five dry kilns and a state-of-the-art planer facility that uses an autograder to ensure on-grade lumber. Earlier this year, the company also installed a 924-kilowatt solar installation onsite.
