Summerville Lumber Mill

Welcome to KapStone’s Summerville Lumber Mill, a division of KapStone Paper & Packaging Corporation. Summerville Lumber produces over 100 million board feet of high quality Southern Yellow Pine annually — enough for 7,000 to 8,000 new homes. The first water powered sawmill was built in Summerville prior to 1699 and was located less than five miles from our present facility. The history continues.

KapStone purchased our facility as part of the North Charleston Mill acquisition in July of 2008 with the vision of becoming the Mill of Choice for users of Southern Yellow Pine. To help us reach this goal we’ve changed our Product Mix to include 18’ and 20’ lumber; we’re also committed to improving the quality of our products so that we can appeal to the high standards set by our customers that develop long term partnerships.

In addition to producing 2” x 4” through 2” x 12” dimensional lumber, we also produce 5/4” x 6” Radius Edge Decking for the treated segment of our business.
