Integrated Biomass Resources has purchased the Wallowa County-owned mill site where it has run its operation since early 2012. By fall, the mill will be upgraded to handle more logs, produce more wood products and provide more jobs.

The financing package Integrated Biomass secured last week allows the now 4-year-old company to buy the former D.R. Johnson mill site in Wallowa from the county and build an automated system that will streamline production.

“We are building something and creating jobs and making products,” Integrated Biomass Resources owner David Schmidt said. “We added several jobs in the last couple weeks and will likely add another half dozen when the project is completed.”

Schmidt said building the system will put all the milling equipment together into one operation. Construction should take approximately four months.

“Right now we handle logs four or five times. The new system will be all inline and integrated so we don’t waste material,” Schmidt said. “We bring in mixed, biomass logs and sort them to the woods’ best use. We have five different product lines and the new system will make us much more streamlined.”
