Our History

 Our original building was located in the heart of the little town of New Vineyard. Originally getting it’s start as the towns blacksmith shop. It began a slow transformation into a wood turning mill in the 1950’s and was purchased by Wayne & Earl Fletcher in 1971.  Wayne’s sons Doug, Gary and Jody owned and operated the business from 1994-2021. All three brothers have worked at the company for years before taking ownership. Each slowly graduated from sawmill workers to machine operators, to mechanics, to supervisors. Today, Jody is sole owner with around 65 employees at our sawmill and factory located in the lakes and mountain region of western Maine.
