Wood-Mizer is pleased to announce the opening of a new sales center for small mills located in Reddick, Florida. Cordwin Custom Sawmill, owned by Chad Cordwin, will join Wood-Mizer’s growing distribution network as the 22nd sales center located within the United States and Canada.

A Wood-Mizer owner for nearly two decades, Chad Cordwin will become the company’s first Pro Sawyer Dealer. Chad became a member of Wood-Mizer’s elite group of approved sawyers, the Pro Sawyer Network, which enabled him to list his business on Wood-Mizer’s online custom sawyer directory – a resource for those looking for a sawyer to saw their own lumber.

During the application process, Cordwin Custom Sawmill’s success made Wood-Mizer take notice. This, along with an appealing Florida location, enabled Wood-Mizer to begin a partnership with Cordwin Custom Sawmill and establish the first ever Pro Sawyer Dealer.

Cordwin Custom Sawmill will offer Wood-Mizer LT10 and LT15 sawmills, blades, and provide demonstrations of Chad’s Wood-Mizer LT70 Hydraulic sawmill and EG200 twin blade edger. 

“Chad’s sawing experience and knowledge of Wood-Mizer products factored in the decision to add Cordwin Custom Sawmill as a new sales center in Florida,” said Wood-Mizer National Sales Manager Dave Mann. “We are looking forward to his contributions to the company and I’d like to welcome him to Wood-Mizer’s growing network of dealers.” 

Wood-Mizer will host the Grand Opening for the Florida Pro Sawyer Dealer on Saturday, April 26th, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Cordwin Custom Sawmill located at 7900 W. Highway 316 in Reddick, Florida. The four hour event will include sawmill demonstrations of Wood-Mizer’s LT40 Hydraulic, LT35 and LT15 sawmills and give those who attend the opportunity to speak with Chad and expert sawmill consultants.

Welcome to the team Chad!
