Introducing Wide As Possible (WAP): Because Random Widths and Lengths Can Only Result in Random Results

Let's say your cut list has a lot of variety. And let's say you've invested a lot in your ripping operation; you manage your dimensional waste and your yields are acceptable to you.  You should stick with NHLA units, right?  Maybe not. 

Best Width and Length Yield

A ripped two edge product, WAP helps you get the best yield possible because it comes sorted in 1' length increments, and can be sorted into 1/2" width increments.  Matching widths to your cut list is our specialty, and you can confidently visualize full width rips from the end of WAP units.  Length sorting saves you even more - from 7 to 15% as you move from longer to shorter lengths.

Even if we don't rip or chop component parts for you, discussing ways to improve your length and width yields is a must.  If you need a WAP quick ship unit so urgently that there isn't time for us to sort the widths, we can supply average width data, and the # of courses that fall within narrow and wider width ranges.

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.
