George Curtis, President and Operations Manager of Wood Products of Kentucky and FastMat, located in Western Kentucky, has 16 years combined sawmill experience in production of wood products and research & design of sawmill equipment.
Starting with C & G Milling, a small family business, he expanded to Wood Products of Kentucky in 2006. In 2010, when the housing market hit bottom, George switched to sawing and manufacturing quality hardwood timbers, crane mats, bridge mats, oilfield mats, transition mats, digging mats, dragline mats, 3-ply laminated/logging/truck mats & lumber (8’ to 42’ long). We purchase our timber from a five (5) state area (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri & Tennessee) in order to source premium timbers for our mat construction. Our mats are used throughout the US, Canada & Mexico.
Because of the high labor costs of drilling and assembling mats, George set out to design an inexpensive, fast, efficient, safe, one-person drill, which produces 40+ mats per 8 hour shift with only 1 person. After 5 years of testing, he is proud to offer our mat drill for retail sales and introduce the FastMat brand name.
