PIQUA, OH—Hartzell Hardwoods, headquartered here, has recently upgraded its equipment and facilities. The firm has added a new dry storage warehouse. It also has added a VisionTally device and a new paint system.
The new warehouse takes in 75,000 square feet under roof. The VisionTally system tallies bundles and reads and calculates each piece for exact width and length with almost 100 percent accuracy. The device scans both ends of a bundle and weighs the bundle. The new paint system was built in-house. It helps in painting the ends of bundles more quickly and efficiently.
Hartzell Hardwoods, which has a secondary location in Kirksville, MO, manufactures more than 20 million board feet annually in Walnut, Red and White Oak, Hickory and Ash.
Hartzell Hardwoods also plans to add two additional dry kilns and a pre-dryer soon.
