In 1944 Al Hallstrom established Zip-O-Log Mills, Inc. in Coburg, Oregon cutting eight foot railroad ties. The current site in Eugene, Oregon was bought in 1951.
In 2006 our capabilities were extended by adding the planing mill in Goshen, Oregon. Today Zip-O-Log Mills, Inc. is owned and operated by a fourth-generation lumberman Karl Hallstrom.
Karl’s twin daughters, KayCee and KelCee Hallstrom, are now participating in the company as the fourth generation.
Adapting to the times and technological advances, Zip-O is able to cut top quality products up to 52’ in length.
For a full account of the history of Zip-O-Log Mills, Inc. look for the book “The Zip-O Story” by Gail Wells. It covers the years 1944 thru 2010 and is available if you would like a copy.
