Jeff Hupp first came to Alaska on May 2nd 1981 to Wrangell, AK. He spent the summer and fall logging for Valentine Logging. After working that one season, Alaska left an impression on him. In 1990 he returned and continued logging, running logging equipment and also falling timber.
In 1992 He moved to Petersburg and made it his home. In 1996 he started his own business and life changed forever.
In 1997 he purchased his first sawmill and began making lumber from local timber. After several years of this he purchased a second mill.
The year 2004, two of the retail lumber yards closed down. Jeff saw a need for the community and made the commitment to fulfill the needs in Petersburg offering lumber, plywood, roofing, concrete products and general building supplies. With dedication from the community this stewardship of employment is growing. During the saw milling day's Jeff made many relationships, one in specifically was with Tyler Rental Inc., Of Ketchikan Alaska
Now, nearly 20 years later, AK Fibre is now serving all of Petersburg and outlying areas.
