The West Coast Dry Kiln Association was established over 70 years ago. The Association holds periodic meetings at locations throughout the Northwest. These meetings frequently include tours of participating mills, and the Association welcomes the opportunity to visit new locations. If your mill is interested in hosting a tour, please contact us!
Our meetings can include presentations about new equipment and technology, as well as refreshers on the basic fundamentals of kiln drying. Everyone can learn something of value. If you have an informative, non-commercial presentation for us to consider, we look forward to hearing from you!
