EAST CORINTH, Maine -- If you drive 20 miles northwest from Bangor, Maine on Route 15, you come to the small community of East Corinth. This is the home of Corinth Products, a family-owned pallet manufacturing and sawmill business.
The company was founded in the early 1960s and is today owned by Peter Higgins, who bought it from the original owner in 1979. Peter manages the day-to-day operations of the company with the help of his son, Burley, and daughter, Stephanie, both vice presidents.
Corinth Products manufactures pallets and lumber. The company buys hardwood logs from timberlands owned by John Hancock Insurance Co., including beech, maple, oak and yellow birch. Timber harvesting is done by Wagner Forest Products in
