In addition to their world-leading portable sawmill equipment, Wood-Mizer’s equipment line has grown significantly and now includes machinery for the pallet industry, remanufacturing operations, cabinet and millwork shops, small log sawmill processing systems, headrigs, multirips, and sawmill systems that can produce tens of thousands of board feet of lumber per shift. “Wood-Mizer is committed to serve the needs of hobbyist, professional, and industrial-level wood processing clients throughout the world,” said Greg Bacon, Wood-Mizer Sales Director. “It became apparent that Heicor was the best choice to represent Wood-Mizer industrial products in the Pacific Northwest because of their experience and industry knowledge. We’re confident that Heicor can successfully represent Wood-Mizer in a way that is beneficial for both our company and our customers for years to come.”

Kevin Corder, President of Heicor Enterprises, said “We are very excited to become an industrial sales center for Wood-Mizer. Glen and I are both former long-time employees and it’s great to be ‘back in the saddle’ again! We are eager to present Wood-Mizer machines as a solution to many of the needs and opportunities in this region.
