Pinnacle, Westervelt, Two Rivers Come Together

The Demopolis facility is expected to have annual production volume of 360,000 metric tons. The Demopolis facility will operate under a single partnership with Pinnacle, The Westervelt Company (TWC), and Two Rivers Lumber (TRL) holding a 70%, 20% and 10% interest, respectively.

The Demopolis facility is in the final stages of design and construction planning. Long-term fiber supply agreements have been completed with the majority of suppliers, including Westervelt and Two Rivers Lumber, which has built a new sawmill at Demopolis that will supply the new pellet mill
