Starfire Lumber Co. was incorporated on February 9, 1983. Francis D. Engle, the company’s founder, purchased an old cedar mill in the small community of Cottage Grove, Oregon, U.S.A. After spending over ten million dollars in the initial purchase and subsequent improvements, Starfire Lumber has become one of the most innovative mills in the world.
On June 17, 2013, Mr. Engle’s grandson, Sean M. Smith, became Starfire’s third President & CEO.
