IRON MOUNTAIN — Timber Products of Iron Mountain had a ribbon cutting Tuesday to introduce new owners Adam and Sarah Buchcuski.

Located at 611 Industrial Drive, Timber Products was founded in 1991 and handles a variety of local and over-the-road markets. Timber Products offers 25 trucks and more than 100 dry van, open top and flatbed trailers for freight hauling.

“We are blessed with a wonderful crew of drivers, mechanics and dispatchers that allow us to ensure your product is always delivered safely and on time. We look forward to servicing this community for many years to come,” new owner Adam Buchcuski said.

Buchcuski said he got involved in Timber Products when the previous owner, his stepmother, Candy Buchcuski, wanted to retire. He was looking to make a change as well from working at American Axle & Manufacturing in Kingsford when his father suggested he consider taking over the business.

It took about a year to work out all the details, Adam Buchcuski said.

“I like it. I really enjoy it so far,” he said. “The learning curve has been quick, but I think it’s been fairly seamless.”

He credits much of that successful transition to having experienced staff still with the business, such as Office Manager Stacey Lantagne, Candy Buchcuski’s daughter.
