Biewer Lumber Announces Plans For a Second Sawmill in the South

Executives from Biewer Lumber announce the development of a new state-of-the-art sawmill which will be located in Winona, Mississippi.

Future site of Biewer Sawmill – Winona

The Winona facility will be the second Biewer sawmill located in the state. The new sawmill will be modeled after Biewer’s Newton facility, which was complete in 2016. This new facility will bring 150+ new jobs to the area of Winona.

“My family’s passion for the lumber industry has prompted this expansion in the south. There is no better place to grow the business than the fiber-rich state of Mississippi” stated Tim Biewer, President & CEO of Biewer Lumber.

The Mississippi Development Authority (“MDA”) played a key role in site preparation and rail/road improvements. “The growth of companies like Biewer Lumber in Mississippi sends a strong message that our state has a supportive business environment and a skilled workforce,” stated Governor Tate Reeves. “Biewer Lumber’s construction of a new sawmill in Winona is a testament to that fact.”

The new Biewer sawmill is expected to be complete and operational by January 2022.
