Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania— Alan McIlvain Company, located here, recently installed a new Weinig Powermat 1500 moulder and a Thomas Manufacturing infeed handling system and bundle dumper/singulator.

The company’s president, Lan McIlvain, commented that the new moulder allows for “very fast changeovers” and can produce widths of up to 12-1/4 inches. Its 12,000 RPM capacity means it can “run quite a bit faster” than McIlvain’s previous moulder. The new infeed device and bundle dumper helps with throughput, he stated. This new equipment helps now that the firm is producing more custom millwork, he said.

Alan McIlvain Company is 223 years old. This firm, close to Philadelphia, produces and distributes hardwood lumber and custom mouldings and keeps over 7 million board feet of hardwood and softwood in stock. Alan McIlvain Company handles Red and White Oak, Walnut, Hard and Soft Maple, Ash, Poplar, Hickory, Cherry, Basswood and, in softwood, White Pine, Alaskan Yellow Cedar and Cypress, plus imported lumber.
