Countervailing Duty on Canadian Softwood – The Platinum Tape, a blog by Kelly Fox

Friends and Neighbors,

After months of speculation, it finally happened, the Trump administration announced that the countervailing duty on Canadian softwood would be set at 19.88%.  If this was the end of it, we could let the smoke clear and start anew in the weeks and months ahead.  Unfortunately, this is not the case so we have a long protracted fight on our hands that will keep the consumer doing what they always do, pay the higher price.  Let us look at what we do know and what we can expect.

Through the regulatory process and our part of the NAFTA agreement, both sides will get the opportunity to state their case in an appeals process.  The final ruling on this issues is not expected until sometime in January 2018.  If history is a good teacher on these issues, the Canadians have almost always won the argument.  Now that we know the fight is a long way from over, let us get down to the more immediate impact on our community.

The first thing I looked following the announcement this morning were the currency markets.  As expected, the Canadian dollar declined.  In a part of the country that depends on Canadian tourism to support our local economy, the weak dollar does not help.  Seeing the restaurants full and the Black Ball moving at capacity is good for all of us that call Clallam County home.  At the end of the day, our business is only as strong as the local economy and every part helps.

The second thing I looked at this morning was the lumber markets to see what was happening.  Surprisingly, everything has remained fairly calm with very little commotion in price files. Of greater concern to us, the impact of this announcement on supply has yet to be fully felt.  We know that we are running into shortage issues in the current market.

If any big producers decide to take drastic action, like not selling into the US market it could leave us very short on supply.  We are conducting a survey to find out how you would like us to respond in the event supply of the #2 & Better Premium we currently offer becomes unavailable.  If you would like to help us, please click here.

The last thing I did this morning was grab the phone and ask for input from our buyers, our supplier partners, and our network.  I learned that most everyone is in the same position as we are with more questions than answers.  That consensus opinion is to not take speculative positions on excess inventory in the near term.

We will follow the market and replace what we sell and try to maintain our business to be nimble with the market.  This will keep our pricing current and eliminate the potential for big profits and big losses.  With that position, we will be relying heavily on our buyers to ensure that we are refilling our stock more frequently in addition to our vendor managed programs.

Like everything in life, the dust will settle on this issue.  When it does, we will be here taking care of our friends and neighbors just as we have been for 111 years.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns about the market; we are here to help.  Please follow our blog or friend us on Facebook for updates as they become available.  I can also be reached via email at kellyf@lumbertradersinc.com or in the store @ 360-452-8933 for more pressing concerns.

Thanks,

Kelly

Donate a Stud and Support Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics (VIMO)

We’d like to make a call out to our customers, clients and neighbors to help with our new “Donate a Stud” campaign for VIMO!

Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics, or (VIMO) for short, is a free clinic primarily serving low-income, veterans and homeless patients living in Clallam and Jefferson counties.  VIMO has medical, behavioral health and dental facilities housed in a crowded building in Port Angeles, WA and currently treat the growing population of under and uninsured patients that typically rely on Olympic Medical Center’s emergency room.

We at Angles Millwork & Lumber Co and Hartnagel Building Supply are committed to putting our efforts in supporting the growth of grassroots non-profits.  VIMO is a perfect example of the great services that can be accomplished when caring industry professionals and community volunteers give back to their community.  With your help, VIMO will move crowded administrative offices currently held in an exam room and overflowing behavioral health facilities to a new building allowing much needed space to serve additional patients and increase the resources to the underserved in our community.

Learn more about VIMO at their website HERE

So how can you Help?

By purchasing a “stud” at either of our stores for just $5 each.  Our goal is to raise $10,000 and fund a large majority of the new VIMO building’s costs. Donators will be featured on an in store display, on our website and on our social media postings.

Call or visit us today to donate:

  • 1 Stud = $5
  • 5 Studs = $25
  • 10 Studs = $50
  • 20 Studs = $100

VIMO relies on volunteer providers and staff to deliver services to more than 1,500 patients each year. To become a part of the VIMO team and help building up the community, email info@vimoclinic.org to request a volunteer packet.

Volatile Lumber Trading and the Affect on Lumber Pricing

Friends and Neighbors,

Lumber trading right now is extremely volatile with no end in sight per many of our supplier partners.  The cause of the spike in the lumber prices is related to increased demand around the country and uncertainty related to the expired softwood lumber agreement.

With the market growth and the tariff looming, dealers like us are taking on inventory positions that are pushing out order files at the mill level for many months so that we can make sure to cover our customers in the peak season.  The tariff is aimed at balancing the pricing between US and Canadian producers that will most likely result is a retroactive tax on the Canadian goods.  This has caused the producers to collect the money upfront to protect themselves when, not if, it is imposed.  The struggle right now is no one knows what the amount will be so most mills and suppliers are collecting at the worst-case rate.

Since the beginning of the year, our stores have seen our cedar prices grow by more than 40%.  Since the beginning of February, we have seen our lumber commodity prices increase by 20-25% with some seeing 35%+.  Because we cannot sell our inventory at current market pricing and still make the profits our business needs to survive, we are selling at our replacement cost.  We expect treated lumber to follow the commodity markets up at about the same rates in the next few days.

One way we continue to look out for our customers is to look at our inventory position and the price increases to see if we can cover ourselves week to week without passing on the full weight of our cost increases.  The down side to this is that we cannot honor our quoted prices beyond one week.

Thank you for your understanding, we are here to help in any way that we can.  If you have any questions about the market or need some clarification about a specific segment, please shoot me an email or talk with your sales person.  We will continue to watch the prices and adjust up and down as the market dictates along with keeping all of you posted with our weekly lumber commodity hot sheet updates.  If you would like to be added to the email list for the Lumber Commodity Hot Sheets please email Josh Bergesen at joshb@lumbertradersinc.com .  You can always find the newest lumber commodity pricing on our Blog page, through Facebook and on our Twitter feed.

Thank you for placing your trust in us and we all look forward to serving you in 2017 and beyond.

Thanks,

Kelly

Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co. Celebrates 110 years Serving Port Angeles & the Olympic Peninsula

Angeles-Millwork-Port-Angeles-Employees-1906Filion Mill & Lumber Co.As employee owners we have a sense of pride in what came before us and how it has helped mold us into the company we are today. We at Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co. celebrate the last one-hundred and ten years of serving Port Angeles and the greater Olympic Peninsula with great pride.

Founded by brothers Felix and Ishmael Filion, Angeles Millwork & Lumber Company first began as the Filion Mill & Lumber Co.  In 1892, Ishmael and his son Alfred were operating a mill in Huron County, Michigan, working with native hardwoods that were too small and limited for their desired applications. Felix Filion, brother to Ishmael was in Port Angeles in the summer of 1892 and wrote his brother about the great number of large logs that were available in the Clallam County area.  With that news the decision was made and the mill was shipped to Port Angeles on the steamer Island Belle in February of 1893.  Transported by horse-drawn truck the mill was assembled at what is now the corner of 11th and B street and was in running order in May of 1893.

Angeles-Millwork-&-Lumber-Co-1906-3The logging for the mill was done with oxen from the east end of Clallam County and progressed into using a donkey engine locomotive and cars that ran on a track built with wooden rails.  The mill primarily produced dimensional lumber and shingles for the peninsula.

In 1903 the mill burned to the ground in a large fire.  Many building projects within Port Angeles were delayed because the Filion Mill was the primary source of lumber and shingles in the area.

Angeles-Millwork-&-Lumber-Co-1906-pngThe mill was rebuilt at its current location at West 16th and C street and quickly became the largest employer in town, employing up to 55 men.  The mill produced on an average day 35,000 board feet of lumber and 70,000 shingles.  All the wood products were logged west of the mill toward dry creek and were moved by wagons pulled with teams of horses to their destinations.

Shortly before World War I the logging railroad was extended towards the east into Tumwater Valley and down to the waterfront.  Lumber and shingles could now be shipped into Seattle markets and Angeles-Millwork-&-Lumber-Co-1906-Port-Angelesbeyond.  After the war, railroad rails were taken up and were sold to companies in the Philippines.  Gasoline driven logging trucks began to dominate the industry and trucks hauled the finished products to their destinations.

In 1924 the sawmill was moved to the upper end of Tumwater creek to take advantage of the hydroelectric power.  The mill office and the lumberyard were maintained at the current site.

The largest employer in Port Angeles, the mill was always at the forefront of employee benefits and is rumored to be the first company in the U.S. to offer a retirement package.

Angeles-Millwork-&-Lumber-Co.-Port-Angeles-Old-AdvertismentAngeles Millwork & Lumber Company went through many changes as the local lumber yard and hardware store.  It made a transition to millwork, windows and moldings in the 40’s and chances are if you have a single-paned wood window on the peninsula, it was most likely produced at this facility.  Moving into the 60’s and 70’s, cabinets and moldings took center stage but lumber was still the tried and true quality product that was consistently driving the success of the business.

The store went through some additional changes and was rebuilt in 1978 and also in 1995 after a large snowfall caused the roof to give way.  Much of the focus has transferred from the production end to retail and contractor services.

Schoutens-100_1006In 1984 Arnold & Debbie Schouten became shareholders in Lumber Traders, Inc., the parent company of Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co. and Hartnagel Building Supply and eventually acquired full ownership in the company. While Arnold held the positions of CEO/President and Debbie maintained Secretary/Treasurer positions, they were instrumental in the daily management and success of both locations.

In January 2004 Arnold and Debbie Schouten rewarded their dedicated employees and sold the two stores to the employees, creating the only 100% ESOP company headquartered in Port Angeles. Arnold and Debbie felt strongly that they wanted to provide a secure and profitable future for the company’s employees. By creating an ESOP the employee shareholders can have significant influence over the direction and success of the future of the company and themselves.  Arnold and Debbie have remained on the board of directors fulfilling an advisory roll when needed.

Angeles-Millwork-&-Lumber-Co.-1601-south-C-STThe next twelve years we saw some of the best of times and also some of the worst in the history of the company.  Through it all Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co. and Hartnagel Building Supply have stayed true to providing quality building materials from knowledgeable employees.  Trusting this approach through all the ups and downs of the economy and the influx of big box stores has been the pivotal reason we have been able to serve you for 110 years.

The history of your hometown lumber and hardware store is of course important, but at the end of the day, it’s not where you’ve been that matters most, it’s where you’re going.  Kelly Fox, CEO has an idea of what that looks like HERE.

Be sure and join us in celebration of 110 years in business with a BBQ, vendor displays, games and prizes on Thursday,  August 25th at Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co.!  More information HERE.

The Next Hundred Years.

Invite and Newsletter post headerReflecting back on a 110 years of history has been a great deal of fun for me.  I looked back at the changes in our community, our business and our industry.  I see the celebration of the good times and I cherish the kind words and the people that made our business what it has become.  As I have read through stacks of notes of gratitude for supporting a particular community project or thoughtful comments about the great service by one of our employees, I was filled with hope for the next hundred years.

I was asked to share with you what I think the future looks like from our perspective and quite frankly, I am really not sure.  What I can predict with confidence is our future is going to be uniquely about you!

The product demands of our customers are constantly changing with the newest trends shown on websites like Pinterest and Houzz (two things that did not exist ten years ago.)  YouTube and Vimeo have given many of us the courage to rebuild our own deck or tile our bathrooms and the digital exchange of funds has allowed for a more expedited buying experience done on the customer’s time.

In many cases, homeowners ourselves, we share your passion for living in and improving the space around us.  We will continue to stay on top of the latest trends and common practices in building and home improvement on our website. We will soon provide you with the ease of online buying and ordering of products and services so that you can spend your time on the jobsite or with your family.  While all this is great, the most important factor that has not changed in the last hundred years, and will not change in the next hundred years, is direct human interaction. The one on one exchange of ideas and solutions between the community and our stores will continue to be nurtured as we walk with you down the store aisles, providing the service and the advice you can trust where an ever expanding sea of information exists.

The local knowledge with neighbors helping neighbors will remain the cornerstone of our business for years to come.  Whatever your source of inspiration for the next hundred years, I am confident that the team of employee owners at Angeles Millwork and Lumber Co. and Hartnagel Building Supply will be right there to help.

Thank you for being a part of our rich history in Port Angeles, we look forward to the next hundred years of serving you and your successive generations.
