BY HBSDealer Staff

Lenox, a division of Stanley Black & Decker, has introduced two new carbide-tipped reciprocating saw blades: the Lazer CT and Demolition CT, which are designed to handle difficult-to-cut metals, including stainless steel and cast iron, along with tough, nail-embedded wood.

“Our focus on blade durability and performance has allowed us to extend and enhance our product offering in the recip category — which means our customers can continue to focus on increasing jobsite performance instead of tool limitations,” said Matt Lacroix, director of product marketing for Lenox.

The new Lenox Lazer CT reciprocating saw blades feature high-performance carbides that are welded to increase durability and prevent tooth loss. Lenox says the Lazer CT delivers up to 10 times the life and fast-performance cutting of applications such as stainless steel. A tall blade profile facilitates straight cuts in demanding metal cutting applications like stainless steel and cast iron. The blade also delivers advanced performance when cutting non-ferrous metals, ferrous metals with a variety of thicknesses and threaded rod. Lazer CT is available in 4-inch, 6-inch and 9-inch lengths to cover the most popular cutting applications.

The next generation of Lenox Demolition CT reciprocating saw blades are designed for tough, nail-embedded wood applications. Each tooth is precision-ground on multiple surfaces, creating optimum angles that allow the blade to cut through nails with ease, according to Lenox. The thick blade profile provides increased durability and greater control to deliver up to 10 times the life. The new Demolition CT blades are available in 6-inch, 9-inch and 12-inch lengths.

Lenox is part of Stanley Black & Decker, an S&P 500 company and a diversified global provider of hand tools, power tools and related accessories, electronic security solutions, healthcare solutions, engineered fastening systems.

Weyerhaeuser exits Twin Creeks Timber venture

BY HBSDealer Staff

Weyerhaeuser has sold off its interest in the Twin Creeks Timber, LLC venture for $107.5 million in cash, the company reported today. 

The forest and building products giant has also agreed to sell 100,000 acres of southern timberlands to Twin Creeks for $202.5 million, which includes 80,000 acres in Mississippi and 20,000 acres in Georgia. The deal expected to close by the end of 2017.

Under terms of the deal, Weyerhaeuser is terminating its agreement to manage Twin Creeks timberlands effective Dec. 31.

"Through these transactions, we are simplifying our operations to focus on management of our own timberlands while continuing to strategically optimize our timberland portfolio," Doyle R. Simons, Weyerhaeuser president and CEO, said in a prepared statement.

The Twin Creeks joint venture was formed as partnership between the Plum Creek Timber Company and several investment firms. Weyerhaeuser assumed a stake in the partnership after it acquired Plum Creek Timber in February 2016.

Based in Seattle, Weyerhaeuser is one of the largest global forest products and building products manufacturers. The company owns nearly 13 million acres of timberlands and generated net sales of $6.4 billion in 2016.
