Brunner Hildebrand, which is a leader in vacuum technology for drying lumber, has made major moves to solidify its place in the North American market. Brunner Hildebrand has delivered six new
hardwood dry kilns to Pike Lumber in Akron, Ind. and five softwood kilns to Columbia Vista Corp. in Vancouver, Wash. These sales wins show that vacuum technology is picking up popularity in the United States.
To service its expanding customer base, Brunner Hildebrand has moved into a bigger facility in Nashville, Tenn. to store parts and service customers with overnight delivery. For 35 years Matthias Harnisch has been the U.S. service contact for service and parts. He can be reached at 615/714-2690.
Almost a year ago, Brunner Hildebrand named Jeff Cowley to its U.S. sales team. Jeff is based in Jacksonville, Fla. and is an expert in kilns and sawmilling equipment with more than 30 years of experience. You can reach Jeff by calling 904/707-3425.
Brunner Hildebrand believes its small cylindrical 4,000 bd.ft. kilns fill a niche for many hardwood manufacturers that are looking for flexibility. The Brunner Hildebrand vacuum dry kilns are the newest in vacuum kiln technology and are loaded just like a regular track loaded dry kiln. No heating plates are needed. Call Jeff at 904/707-3425 or visit www.brunner-hildebrand.com for more information.
