Polkton, North Carolina (March 31, 2021) – Smith Sawmill Service is dedicated to meeting the ever-changing needs of the wood industry; providing services for sawmills, chip mills, pallet mills, paper mills, and plywood/OSB manufacturers. Smith Sawmill Service is announcing the acquisition of Precision Saw Works, Inc., located in Polkton, North Carolina: founded in 1986 by Frank Curran, they have specialized in the repair and manufacturing of both band and circle saws, providing exemplary service to their customers for 35 years. This addition will enhance Smith Sawmill Service’s footprint on the East Coast, and with our existing infrastructure, will allow us to better serve our customers, both current and new, in that region and beyond.
Smith Sawmill Service will use Precision Saw Works' existing facility, including retention of current management and employees, to provide services for repairing & sharpening, as well as the manufacture of circle saws, bandsaws, and custom sawmill parts. Frank Curran, and his son Travis, will continue to act as managers and help lead this location. The goal is to achieve a seamless integration of both companies over the next three weeks, with no service interruption, and during that time “our customers will continue to receive the same high-quality products and service that they have come to expect," stated Paul Smith, President of Smith Sawmill Service.
Paul & Debra Smith laid the foundation for this family owned, family oriented, company in 1990, and have been providing quality products and exemplary customer service for over 30 years. Smith Sawmill Service is an innovator of sawmill technology, with multiple industry-related patents, always striving to increase the efficiency and productivity of the wood industry. With the help of their son Michael Smith, and General Manager Dustin Norris, the company has continued to grow and build upon the legacy of Paul and Debra Smith. The addition of an East Coast location was a natural next-step in the evolution of this company, and under the stewardship of Michael and Dustin, Smith Sawmill Service will continue to remain cutting-edge; never forgetting the past, but with an eye always on the future.
Precision Saw Works, Inc. will be named Smith Sawmill Service - North Carolina, and is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Smith Sawmill Service.
