The Price CompaniesThe Price Companies
The Price Companies, Inc., based in Monticello, Arkansas, is one of the largest and most experienced wood processing companies in the U.S. It was established by John Porter Price in 1965 as a lumber, logging, and sawmilling operation. The Price Lumber Co. sawmill still bears his name. In 1981, the company engineered a rotating drum tree debarker that eventually changed the focus of Price from lumber and milling to equipment fabrication and contract wood chipping.
