Wood-Mizer LLC, the world’s leading sawmill manufacturer, announces the winners of their 2014 Business Best Contest, a long-standing tradition that recognizes Wood-Mizer sawmill owners who have demonstrated exemplary business methods. Each winning business was featured in The Wood-Mizer Way, Wood-Mizer’s exclusive customer magazine for the portable and industrial sawmill industry with a circulation of more than 35,000.
The contest, which occurs every two years, is open to any Wood-Mizer sawmill business interested in competing for their share of $12,250 in prize credits awarded to winning operations. First, Second and Third Place winners were named in each of three categories after each entry was judged on business practices, ethics, organization, and overall use of the Wood-Mizer sawmill throughout the operation.
