What Our Clients Say
“We have worked with Sawco (previously Hodgson Saw) since 2009. We needed to improve our trim finish and heard the V-Top saws were the best in the industry. We put together a program with them for our planer and the results were instant! Overseas customers called us immediately to find out what we had changed. We have been so impressed by the service, reliability, knowledge, and performance at Sawco that we even started using them in our two new sawmills in Alberta and Saskatchewan. I highly recommend Sawco Industries.”
“Louisiana Pacific Golden has been dealing with the team at Hodgson/Sawco for over 10 years. We originally had our blades sharpened by another company and had decided to send blades after being approached by the previous owner Jim years ago. After receiving the blades back we were impressed. The turnaround time is good for our location and if we require something to be done immediately they will step up and service. We have chosen to purchase the plate for any new sawblades from Hodgson/Sawco as an agreement between us has been made and we send all saws to them for sharpening and repair. They have and continue to provide excellent service and quality to our saw cutting requirements.”
Jody Hiraoka – Materials Manager II, Louisiana-Pacific Corporation
“The Sawco team has always done prompt and excellent work for us even going out of their way to getting blades out for us in a couple of days if we’ve been in a bind . Since we deal quite a bit in the Japanese market and finish is everything including the end trimming, Sawco has always done an excellent job with our V-Top trim-saws . In the last 2 years we have also added a brand new CLT plant which Sawco does a lot of various sized V-Top saws for and the work is always second to none . I look forward to doing more business with them in the future.”
Eric Eggers – Saw Filer
“Sawco has been manufacturing and servicing our Sawmill and Planer trim saws for several years including benching, sharpening and retipping them. The saw mill saws are a 24” alternate top and the planer are a 17” V-top. Sawco has also manufactured saws for both of our gangs and our board edger. We have also sent gang saws to get retipped when our tipper has been down. Sawco has been a great asset for us and are always there to help us out. The quality of work and service is top notch.”
