  • Pontrilas Sawmills invest in a new state of the art log sorting line...

    by Miranda Hickman

Here at Pontrilas Sawmills our investment program is well under way. This new site adjoins our sawmills in Herefordshire and accomodates our state of the art Holtec log sorting line.

This highly automated new line of machinery means that we can turn and process around 16 individual logs a minute and sort them into 20 different bins depending on the size of each log.

We are half way through all the concreting now and the majority of the line has been put together as you can see in the photos below:

The photos above show:

We are extremely excited about this new project and look forward to updating you of further progress soon!
