Norwood has earned the reputation as the brand-name you can trust – a reputation for building hard-working, reliable, productive, affordable and easy-to-use machines. In fact, it’s the tens of thousands of Norwood sawmills cutting millions of board-feet of lumber in over 100 countries worldwide that have earned Norwood this reputation.

Norwood began 25 years ago with one man’s dream to build a quiet lakeside cabin. But Norwood founder, Peter Dale, couldn’t afford the high prices at the lumber yard. He looked at milling his own, but couldn’t believe the high prices expected by sawmill companies.
That was the first time many hardworking people could afford a portable sawmill (sawmills) of their very own. Families built homes they had only ever dreamed of. Wood workers milled speciality lumber products and crafted unique and valuable furniture. People made money selling their lumber and milling for others. The LumberMate revolutionised the world of portable sawmills, and in doing so, changed the lives of thousands of families.

To this day, Norwood is still rooted in those same values – to engineer and build portable sawmills (sawmills) and forestry equipment that are rugged, productive, dependable, versatile and affordable. Norwood owners count on their machines to get the job done, every day.
