This is the first in a series in which we are highlighting many of the varied services we offer our customers. At Bingaman & Son Lumber, we take great care in not only ensuring we provide our customers with the highest quality hardwood products available, but in most cases, we are the initial link in their respective supply chains. It is in this regard that we want to be as proactive as possible in helping to make sure that we can add to immediate efficiencies within their inventory and manufacturing processes.
Take, for example, the Bingaman Lumber service known as S2S, short for “Surface two Sides,” which is a prepping service where we convert both sides of rough lumber to smooth, near-finished surfaces. Here, we run the customer’s choice of lumber through our high-speed planers, yielding a product with equalized thickness, and consistently-smooth surface on each side. Planed to nearly any given specification, the S2S service serves as a next finishing step for our customers. Not only is it one less step that a customer can eliminate from his/her manufacturing process, but it saves tremendously on equipment wear and tear, reducing maintenance costs and increasing the useful life of their machinery. The typical customers who request the S2S service include flooring providers, and cabinet and molding manufacturers.
