In October of 2021 we installed a new green trimmer line in our hardwood sawmill. We turned to Ray Tharpe with RTM Industrial Maintenance to handle the installation. We had hired RTM for a previous project, an Optimized Edger installation, and we were very impressed wit the knowledge and professionalism of Ray and his crew. After the completion of that first project we knew RTM would be our go-to installer for years to come. The years of experience that the RTM crew brings to the job provides us a level of comfort that you can’t put a price on. During any equipment installation project you can expect to encounter obstacles, but the success of the project is defined by how you overcome those obstacles. RTM is first class and a pleasure to work with.

Monty, Ray and their whole team are without a doubt the safest, most professional and most productive team that we’ve had the pleasure of working with. We can scratch out a simple drawing on a piece of paper and the RTM team, calling on their years of experience can put their heads together and bring our vision to life.
We had a recent fire at our facility and the RTM team mobilized within hours to help us rebuild. Sometimes building things to get my plant back in production with whatever we could find and modify from our boneyard. The RTM team worked long days seven days a week at times to get us going.
The end results, thanks to Monty, Ray and their team was a functioning plant within weeks, work that should have taken months.
These guys are awesome!

As fairly newcomers to the Hardwood Sawmill Industry, our knowledge of the equipment and setup is extremely limited to say the least. In our search for an installer, RTM was repeatedly mentioned as being the very best in the industry. As a business that has founded itself on the principles of quality, the best was the only thing we were willing to accept because even the best machines are useless unless they are properly installed and setup correctly. The knowledge that Ray and Monty possess is truly unmeasurable. That knowledge combined with a team that will stop at nothing short of perfection is what makes them the best. No matter what obstacle you throw at them, they will overcome it.
In business, there are many places where you can cut cost, but the machines that feed your family and the families of your employees are not the place. When I think about RTM, three words come to mind: Knowledgeable, Hardworking, and Professional. If you choose RTM, you will not be disappointed.
