Our customers say it best

"Within two months of Pennyrile Sawmill installing a new carriage system with JS-25 X6Bs, it has increased production by 4-5% and has increased yield by at least 8%.” Mahlon Grayber, Owner
Pennyrile Sawmill
"Thank you for all the support that JoeScan is giving us! I truly couldn't ask for a better bunch of folks to work with!" James Morton, Field Engineer

"JoeScan scan heads are unique and simple. They do not require additional hardware and software systems, which simplifies the integration process." Jerry Johnson, President
Paw-Taw-John Services, Inc.
"JoeScan scanners are bulletproof. Year after year, they withstand the rough sawmill environment with its sawdust, grease and vibration." Randy Beard,
Seneca Sawmill

"JoeScan scanners are reliable, stable and have a long life. Those qualities, combined with the practical application and the result to our mill, set their scanners apart from the competition."

David Richbourg, Plant Manager
H.W. Culp Lumber Co., Inc.
"We’re running like a dream. Thank you so much for all the effort JoeScan put it. I can’t tell you how much I really appreciate that.” James Morton, Field Engineer
Paw-Taw-John Services, Inc.

"Collins Hardwood in Richwood, West Virginia, installed JoeScan scanners on its carriage in November 2013. JoeScan scanners have exceeded our expectations. I am surprised by the durability. The carriage takes a lot of abuse, so we had concerns about installing them on the carriage itself. So far we have not had any issues."

Andy Roberts, Operations Manager
Collins Hardwood, Richwood, West Virginia

"I have worked with many scanners built by many different vendors, and none has been even close to being as rugged and reliable as the JoeScan JS-20."

Robert Cecil, Engineer
Cecil Company

"Our clients need reliable, reputable products without unnecessary bells and whistles. JoeScan scan heads fit these specifications."

Jerry Johnson, President
Paw-Taw-John Services, Inc.

"We are looking at expansions in the future and will definitely consult with JoeScan on future projects."

Andy Roberts, Operations Manager
Collins Hardwood, Richwood, West Virginia

"We've had zero problems with our JoeScan scanners. They're way better than we had even hoped for."

Doug Fritz,
Banks Lumber

"Our 24-head snapshot scanner has been running great since 2003. Even with nine heads riding on the carriage for Surround Scan, we've had no problem with the JS-20 scan heads."

Mark Hecker, Operations Manager
Buse Timber and Sales

"The JoeScan scanners on our TMT edger are very reliable - they operate consistently every day with little upkeep. They're so reliable that sometimes we overlook routine maintenance on them. They're sort of like a Timex watch: they take a licking but keep on ticking."

Bruce Duncan
Kane Hardwood

"The JoeScan scanner has a simple interface that makes it easy to integrate with other products. It's easier than any other product on the market. And its reliability is its single best attribute."

Rod Nelson, Owner
Nelson Bros. Engineering

"JoeScan's commitment to service is outstanding. For instance, they keep a 'customer spare' scanner to send out as an immediate replacement if one of their products ever has a problem - to keep client downtime to an absolute minimum."
