Portable Sawmills Manufacturer Improving their Online Forum that Connects Sawmilling Community

Norwood Sawmills has upgraded its online forum to better support its growing global customer base and the sawmilling community at large.

Norwood Industries, a leading global manufacturer of portable sawmills and forestry equipment, has upgraded the software it uses to power “Norwood Connect,” its innovative online forum for sawmill owners to interact with each other and to share sawmilling tips, techniques, and stories.

Norwood was one of the first pioneers to host an online forum dedicated to portable sawmills and small-scale forest management and wood-processing. Over ten years later, “Norwood Connect” has become a vital virtual meeting place for thousands of sawmilling enthusiasts from all over the world.

“Norwood Connect has been the essential go-to forum for sawyers from around the globe for over a decade,” says Norwood Industries’ vice-president, Ashlynne Dale. “Norwood was the first sawmill manufacturer to host an online forum dedicated to sawmilling. It has given people a central place where they can discuss milling, exchange know-how, and provide valuable feedback. To this day, we’re still the only portable sawmill company to do so.”

“Norwood Connect gives sawmill owners and people interested in getting into sawmilling a venue to exchange ideas," adds Dale. "It also gives them another way to communicate with Norwood and has proven to be an invaluable tool for Norwood to stay connected with its customers to assist with their forest management and milling needs.”

In addition to hosting a forum, Norwood has made a significant commitment to enable its customers and prospects from around the world to communicate via whatever offline or online channels they prefer including its newly redesigned website and via its Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn, and Twitter pages. Dale continues, “In an increasingly social world, we want to make sure Norwood owners and all consumers know they can connect with us however they feel most comfortable.”

The decision to update the forum’s software is rooted in Norwood’s goal to reinforce members’ security and to make Norwood Connect an even more valuable tool for sawyers. Now that the upgrade and migration of the forum and its users to Norwood’s new website is complete, members can login via http://www.NorwoodSawmills.com/forum.
