USNR, a supplier of equipment and technologies for the sawmill industry, opened a new facility in Jacksonville, Fla.

The site comprises 10 acres of land, more than 150,000-sq.-ft. of flexible manufacturing and warehousing space, and a large office complex for the company’s Jacksonville-based sales, engineering, project management, service, and operations personnel. The offices also include a new training center, with facilities to host customers and provide technical training, according to the company.

“Our old site served the company for more than 100 years, but it was holding us back, troy Johnson, general manager of the Jacksonville facility, said in a statement.

“The new facility is a game-changer. We now have the opportunity to rethink every one of our processes and set everything up to optimize our operations.”

The new plant uses state-of-the-art equipment and technology for raw material preparation, machining, fabrication, painting, and assembly. It also features double the crane-served area, and more than double the useful manufacturing space as compared with the old plant, the company said.

“With all of this new capability, we are now in a great position to support much more of USNR’s very broad product line, both new equipment and replacement parts, right here in Florida,” added Johnson.
