Woodland Mills was co-founded in 2009 by Neil Bramley & Josh Malcolm to fill a void in the industry for high quality, affordable forestry equipment geared specifically for handy, do it yourself landowners with a vision!
Being mechanical engineers by trade and woodlot owners themselves living in rural North America, Neil and Josh began prototyping designs for forestry equipment in response to the poor selection of these products available in the market. It seemed that everything that was of good quality was extremely expensive and anything at a reasonable price point didn’t have the durability and craftsmanship required to meet the needs of a discerning handyman. Realizing that through a process of innovative design, cost effective manufacturing and selling directly to the customer thereby eliminating middleman markup, they could offer products with the same exceptional performance and construction as much more expensive models but at a price point that hobbyists could justify! With these objectives in mind, Neil and Josh began their quest to design the highest quality, best valued forestry equipment available in the market.
As milling enthusiasts, the first product they chose to tackle was a portable sawmill for acreage owners. After many design iterations and extensive field testing a prototype was achieved that offered the perfect balance of durability, portability and precision cutting capabilities. Equipped with a heavy duty frame and the reliable Kohler engine, this mill was designed to last and provide sawyers with many years of milling enjoyment.
The next hurdle was to find a manufacturing partner that could consistently deliver the superior quality required to meet Woodland Mills standards, and for a cost that enabled offering these products to consumers at unbeatable price points. Utilizing his years of experience sourcing automotive components for a major North American auto manufacturer, Neil began his global search for the perfect manufacturing partner. After a comprehensive assessment of many potential suppliers, a manufacturer based in China was selected as the best source to meet all the requirements – including state of the art manufacturing equipment, skilled management and workforce, advanced assembly processes and rigorous quality assurance processes. To ensure that every single unit meets our high quality control requirements, the product is fully assembled within the plant for inspection before being partially disassembled for shipping. With a design locked down and manufacturing partner in place, production of Woodland Mills flagship HM126 sawmill commenced in 2010.
Since the initial HM126 launch, Woodland Mills has continued designing and innovating a wide selection of forestry products including Wood Chippers, Stump Grinders, ATV trailers, Forestry Winches, Sawmill Trailers and Firewood Processors. By listening to our extremely creative and talented customers, Woodland Mills has continuously strived to make improvements to our existing products and expand our lineup to meet your needs.
