America’s First Joinery ServiceFounded in 2002, Sauter Timber began by importing U.S. log and timber homes into Europe. As part of the company’s construction process, we outsourced all of our heavy timbers to a company that notched, cut, drilled and numbered the components with a milling machine to prepare it for construction. These types of services were typical throughout Europe, but were nearly nonexistent in North America. So, after researching the market and determining the demand, in 1999, Sauter-Timber LLC was established in Rockwood, Tennessee. This made it the first wood component joinery service in North America. Little did we realize that our actions at the time would fuel a “precut revolution”. Today, more and more companies continue to find the cost and labor efficiencies from outsourcing their precision cutting and joinery to specialists like Sauter Timber.
In 2010, we expanded our services to include fabrication of complete Precision Precut conventional framing packages as well as timber/conventional hybrid home packages. We also provide CNC services for mass timber products including CLT and glulam.
Sauter Timber operates out of a 17,000 square foot production facility, located on three acres in the Roane County Industrial Park in Rockwood, Tennessee.
Sauter Timber currently uses a Hundegger ROBOT-Drive machine. This is 6 axis CNC machine with a 17 tool changer.
