Fletcher’s Mill

Newport, ME

In 1971, brothers Wayne and Earl Fletcher had a vision of owning a business; so on a wing and
a prayer they mortgaged their homes and took ownership of an antiquated wood mill that once served the New Vineyard, Maine locals. They began manufacturing small items including wooden nickels, tool handles and toy parts, which are still being manufactured at the modernized Maine Wood Concepts mill today. Today the Fletcher family business has its own modernized sawmill where the logs are purchased from local loggers and processed into boards, squares and dowels. The wood is then dried in one of six kilns. Once prepared the wood it is then introduced into the manufacturing facility where it is turned or molded into one of thousands of various items the mill produces. As Doug Fletcher likes to say “From raw logs to the finished product the entire process is done in house and under a watchful eye. That is why the Fletchers are proud to say Made in Maine, Guaranteed for Life.”
