Georgia-Pacific Selects BID Group to Deliver State-of- the-Art Lumber Facility in Talladega

The BID Group is proud to announce its selection by Georgia-Pacific to deliver a
state-of- the-art turnkey lumber facility in Talladega, Alabama. Construction will
begin in October 2017 with the mill scheduled to be up and running in September
2018. Powered by Comact, DelTech, Miller and MoCo products, the successful
execution of the project will require the combined efforts of BID Group’s facilities
throughout North America. Located at their former plywood plant, the Talladega
facility will be Georgia Pacific’s first new lumber mill in the South. The BID Group
is excited to be part of Georgia-Pacific’s expansion and the benefits that the
project and mill operations will provide for both the company and the community.

The Talladega lumber facility will feature state-of- the-art technologies specifically
designed, supplied, and installed by the BID Group including a Comact optimized
log bucking system, a Comact saw line with profiling systems, feeding a fully-
automated lumber handling outfeed line and MoCo sticker stacker. The planer
mill will be equipped with the all-new Miller high speed planer, a Comact
GradExpertTM and a fully-automated lumber outfeed and package maker.
Lumber drying will utilize DelTech DPK continuous kiln technology provided
through two dual path kilns.

The Talladega project continues to support the BID Group’s expansion strategy
into the Southern United States, which now includes a world class complex in
South Carolina in addition to eleven other facilities across the continent. This
extension allows BID to better serve regional needs while reducing geographical
costs and barriers while also facilitating our industry leading BID Service support


“BID Group thanks Georgia-Pacific for the opportunity to supply and install the
Talladega lumber facility as well as the opportunity to establish a strong
relationship with both Georgia-Pacific and the community of Talladega”

– BID Group CEO Alistair Cook
