Fixed-Cost Structures 
 Ripped-to-Width, Chopped-to-Length, and Great to Buy

Have you ever asked yourself, "Am I ordering enough lumber to complete the job?" or, "How much inventory am I carrying because I've been ordering more than necessary?"  or, "Where is my profit going?" If so, Fixed-Cost Components from Northern Forest Products are for you.

With Fixed-Cost Components, you can accurately predict the amount of material and labor needed for every job - there's no better way to streamline your costs.  Better still, using Fixed-Cost Components lets you focus on the parts of manufacturing that add the most value and produce the most profit.  This is a natural choice if your cut list has limited sizes.

Minimizing Dimensional Waste


Whether you rip your sizes in one or multiple passes, our ripped-to-width products can eliminate the dimensional waste puzzle.  Also, the handling, storage, and resorting inefficiencies that exist for multiple passes are eliminated.

Exceeding your specifications with higher quality components.  The hand-picked lumber provides the best grain characteristics and region color (plus any other qualities you determine).  Buying component parts on a Fixed-Cost Structure basis helps you better deliver the quality your customers demand.

Optimizing your processes by letting you concentrate on the most profitable areas of your business.  You can reduce rough mill equipment and labor, and spend less time ordering - it's simplified because waste is taken out of the equation.  Order based on what's needed, not by guessing at board feet.

Streamlining your costs by reducing inventory and eliminating doubt about yield.

Fixed-Cost Structure and WAP Products are both delivered with our Stamp of Approval.
