Sawmill Team Members - Day and Nightshift 

Red Stag Timber’s Sawmill compares to no other, with its state of the art USNR machinery, the dual quad large band saw line cutting up to 15 logs per minute, averaging over 8,000 logs per day, a high speed curve saw breaks the timber down.

Further downstream the timber is automatically trimmed and sorted at 140 pieces per minute, finally an auto-stacker packs timber in excess of 700 packets a day.  The latest technology is used, sensors, lasers and cameras are scanning and measuring to ensure optimum decisions are made in milliseconds.  

With all this automation, accuracy and speed it still needs personnel to operate it, calibrate it, clean and maintain, and forever be improving it.  To read more about becoming a Sawmill Team member and apply for this role, click here: Sawmill Team Members - Day & Night Shifts
