Price LogPro, LLC. dates its origin back to 1965 with the formation of J.P. Price Lumber Company in Monticello, AR. Realizing the need for an economical high production drum debarking system for Price Industries Chip Mills, J.P. Price Lumber Company formed their own equipment manufacturing company to supply their need for woodyard technology. This technology would become the standard for economical fiber debarking while using a rubber tire supported drum debarkers.
Price LogPro has developed many components in the chipping and debarking industry. Starting with the original rubber tire drum debarking system to the first transportable drum debarker and mobile drum debarker systems. With over 100 chip mill/drum debarker systems supplied to the industry since 1974, Price has the experience to handle today's evolving industry. Price while meeting the industry needs for cost effective drum debarking system, developed a true pulp and paper duty rotary log crane, which to this day has no equal. Price continued with developing and patenting the first domestic horizontal infeed conveyor system in the late 80's. The Positive Feed Conveying System allowed for greater utilization of the drum debarker with less fiber breakage. Many of Price LogPro's competitors today gained their knowledge while employed at Price or working in many of their chip-mill facilities.
