When Duz Cho Logging went into the sawmilling business, the First Nations company went old school, turning to bush mill technology to solve a modern-day problem.
Instead of installing its modern high-production sawmill inside its building – a former finger-joint plant in the northern B.C. town of Mackenzie – Duz Cho installed it on the outside. The company did so to achieve a specific goal: eliminate the enclosed space that increases the hazard of combustible dust explosions.
