We’re proud to announce that the Maine Wood Products Association (MWPA) has awarded Longleaf Lumber’s Berwick, Maine reclaimed lumber mill the annual Pine Cone Award for innovation, growth, and success in the Maine wood products manufacturing industry.
Awarded to small Maine businesses in the wood products manufacturing industry, the Pine Cone Award recognizes innovative business practices, growth, and success in Maine and beyond.
As a part of our Berwick, Maine mill facility expansion, Longleaf has recently installed a new wood-grinding system to make recycling wood waste more efficient and is constructing a new warehouse and office building. The new building is hosting a rooftop solar photovoltaic array that will help us produce a good deal of our electricity via on-site renewable generation.
We’re honored to receive the Pine Cone Award and are proud to manufacture all our products in the state of Maine. The quality of our flooring, paneling, and other millwork is a testament to the skill and hard work of our millworkers, who give 100% every hour of the day.
We’d also like to thank the federal government and USDA for helping to make our new solar panels a reality. Their REAP program encourages rural Maine businesses to practice sustainability and build enterprises that treat employees, the local community, and our environment with the care and dignity they deserve.
