After notification from the Branim's that they were closing the Barna plant due to decreased sales and some financial difficulties, I spearheaded a group of long time distributors and employess to pool our funds and our talents to purchase the plant, offices, machinery and naming rights from the bank at foreclosure.
We completed that task at the end of June and we have hired 50+ employees. We are running at about 50% capacity right now but our fall looks strong. Jim Barna Log and Timber Homes is the only distributor owned log home company in the USA. We are proud of what we have accomplished so far and excited about the opportunity ahead of us. Joy Mulkern, CFO.
