Mt. Taylor Machine, LLC, a subsidiary of Mt. Taylor Millwork, Inc., a forty six year old New Mexico company, has announced plans to convert their wood moulding plant, outside of Milan, New Mexico, into a state of the art pellet plant. Their anticipated production will start at slightly over 25,000 tons per year with capacity topping 70,000 tons. MTM will provide high quality wood pellets to New Mexico and surrounding states. Additional capacities include utilizing their rail siding for access to sea ports and the European export market.
MTM is also installing a sawmill which can cut cants, beams and other products up to 32′ long and can handle logs up to 42″ in diameter. This will provide MTM with the ability to appropriately pursue “best yield and utilization” of local material harvested in accordance with USDA forest restoration principles.
At the same time MTM is building a smaller pellet plant in the South Valley of Albuquerque. This will provide customers in the Rio Grand Valley access to inexpensive wood pellets manufactured and sold on-site.
Matthew Allen, CEO, has stated the main goal with the smaller Albuquerque plant is to eliminate virtually all shipping costs which will assure customers the least expensive wood pellet on the market.
