MOUNTVILLE, Pennsylvania — AHF Products announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire assets related to Allegheny Wood Products’ (AWP) sawmills in Smoot, Greenbrier County, and Norton, Randolph County. According to AHF president & CEO Brian Carson… AHF will retain approximately 80 direct jobs at the two mills, which were originally slated to close at the end of March, and is expected to create approximately two times that, with new jobs being created for loggers, truckers and suppliers in the region. The supply of Eastern hardwood lumber in the U.S. is currently 65% of what it was pre-pandemic and 40% of what it was before 2007. The purchase of the two sawmills recovers 100% of the lumber supply AHF would have lost due to the closure of AWP. These two mills combined will supply 25 million board feet annually.
