We are excited to see so much progress at Sequal. The in-feed upgrade at Christmas was very successful and has resulted in record production this year. The kilns have enabled us to rapidly grow the kiln dried lumber market and now, as we look ahead, there are a number of new developments which are needed to underpin growth.
There is nothing worse then buying lumber that is not fit for purpose. You spend months scouring the internet for suppliers, try and few and find the quality or price does not line up with your expectations.
Last year Sequal Lumber installed two Windsor, geothermally powered kilns. Due to growing demand Sequal is installing two more.
Sequal Lumber welcomes Kurt Pfanstiel to the newly created role of Value Stream Manager.
Sequal utilises both LEAN and Total Quality Management systems to ensure its discerning global lumber customers are highly satisfied. This blog highlights a simple part of Sequal’s quality system that it took from a Vietnamese Ikea supplier.
Sequal Lumber is pleased to announce that it has two new Windsor kilns on the way.
Sequal were pleased to start the year with an opportunity to give toys as gifts to about 40 children in the Shenzhen Angelland Disabled children Caring Center, China.
The opportunity was developed in partnership with Maxim, a large toy manufacturer in China and customer of Sequal Lumber.
To support Sequal’s growth strategy new log infeed equipment was installed over the Christrmas and 2016 new year break. This exciting new machinery will enable the mill to run much faster and more efficiently. Check out the other photos…
In Sept we announced that we’re undertaking a significant log infeed upgrade this summer. Well, we’re pleased to update that everything is on track and the new equipment has begun to arrive, ready for install over the Christmas break.
