KPAX: Stoltze Lumber picks up $200K+ federal grant

A Northwest Montana company has picked up some federal money that’s aimed at bringing more jobs to the Columbia falls Area.

Sens. Max Baucus and Jon Tester have announced that U.S. forest Service will be giving over $210,000, to help Stoltze Lumber in Columbia Falls create jobs and keep Montana’s forests healthy, according to a news release.

The money will be used to develop and improve its biomass facility, which turns trees and forest debris too small for commercial logging into energy.
