Marks Lumber temporarily shutting down for renovations

HELENA — Marks Lumber is closing down for renovations to their Lumber Mill. They plan to be closed starting in mid-April for 8-10 weeks.

The lumber mill is replacing an edger and a trimmer. The current equipment they have doesn’t allow for as many cutting options and isn’t always reliable. The new equipment will give the lumber mill approximately 60% more efficiency according to owner/operator, Steve Marks.
