In December, Lignetics celebrated the Official Grand Opening of its newest manufacturing plant in Kenbridge, Virginia, with many State and Local officials in attendance.
The new plant will have about thirty local employees and utilize the latest state-of-the-art equipment to produce the highest quality premium wood fuel pellets utilizing local sawmill residuals. Lignetics’ trained operators use computer controlled equipment and robotic technology in conjunction with the most efficient manufacturing practices to produce our premium wood pellets. Efficiency, quality control, and maximization of resources are key components of both the East and West coast locations.
With over 125,000 square feet of storage under roof, this will ensure adequate supplies during the heating season. The facility is located in close proximity to mid-Atlantic and Northeastern markets to ensure availability and reduce transportation costs.
Capable of producing 90,000 tons of wood pellet fuel per year, the environmentally friendly Kenbridge plant is dedicated to green production values. The forty-five acre site is a model of modern manufacturing while being mindful of producing a carbon-neutral product.
Lignetics maintains plants on both the East and West coasts, which helps reduce expensive transportation costs and keeps a readily available and consistent supply of wood pellets and Pres-to-logs® fire logs available at a lower cost. By locating their plants near local markets, Lignetics hopes to reduce their carbon footprint and increase their commitment to the environment.
