Old South Wood Preserving Plans Summertown, Tennessee, Limber Treatment Plant
Located at 4907 Highway 43 North, the new location will consist of an office, lumber barns for wood storage and a treatment plant.
“Old South Wood is excited to be making our home here in Middle Tennessee. The support that we've received from the local government and community has been outstanding. Our team is looking forward to serving Tennessee and its surrounding states with quality pressure treated forest products while also bringing in new jobs and growing to meet the demands of the expanding construction industry here in Middle Tennessee,” Eric Stoll, owner and CEO, Old South Wood Preserving said.
As part of the treatment process, southern yellow pine lumber will be placed in airtight cylinders to be flooded and pressurized with water and chemical concentrate. The lumber will then be vacuumed and stored until completely dry for shipment to the company’s retailers.
“Old South Wood’s decision to establish operations in Summertown will not only enhance our state’s business-friendly climate, but also strengthen the quality of life in Lawrence County. We thank the company for its commitment and for investing in Tennessee,” noted TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
