“Being a new mill with a workforce that is new to the lumber industry we were faced with a lot of educational opportunities. The BID team worked with us in developing a Reliability Program that met our specific needs. They were very responsive to our requests and made adjustments to the program as our needs changed. At the end of the program, we had a maintenance team that had a solid technical understanding of the equipment, detailed preventative maintenance documentation, and a great working relationship with BID technicians that we as a mill can depend on. The BID team was great through the entire Reliability Program, and I can’t thank them enough for everything they did to help us improve our facility.”
