Alaska Fibre Inc.

Jeff Hupp first visited Wrangell, Alaska on May 2nd, 1981. He spent the summer/fall season logging for Valentine Logging. After working that one season, Alaska left an impression on him and in 1990 he returned and continued logging.

​In 1992, Jeff moved to Petersburg and made it his home and in 1996 he started his own business.

Jeff purchased his first sawmill in 1997 and began making lumber from local timber. After several years of this, he expanded and purchased a second mill. They both closed in 2004.

In 2004, Jeff saw a need for the community of Petersburg and decided to fulfill those needs by offering lumber, plywood, roofing, concrete products and general building supplies. With support from the community, employment is growing. He eventually started a partnership with Tyler Rental Inc., one of the many connections he made during his sawmill years.

Now, nearly 20 years later, Alaska Fibre Inc. is now serving all of Petersburg and outlying areas.
