MAY 13 FIELD TRIP TO THE UFPI FACILITY IN SAGINAW
Here are some details for the field trip:
Lunch will be provided -- Please arrive between 12:15-12:30pm. After lunch, we will tour 5 production lines:
The fence panel line is where you can see how precut pickets are assembled into 8' panels. We will also be visiting the finger-jointed stud line where we will see how short boards are scored and assembled into longer pieces. We will walk the floor truss line where we will be looking at how we manufacture our open web floor trusses. We will visit the roof truss production line where you will get to see the self-feeding, fully automated truss saw. If there's time, we'll see the pressure treating area where there's a new treatment available that gives lumber a different color. This is important because it will be used on bottom plates for wood stud walls.
This will be fun and educational. Please be sure to RSVP to let us know that you're coming!
