Johnson Brothers Lumber, a company from Cazenovia NY, is the first business at the ARE Park. In 2015, they installed five lumber drying kilns which went online in March 2016. Their freshly cut lumber is purchased from a 90 mile radius of Johnson Brother's Cazenovia mill in Central New York and they utilize excess heat from the gas-to-energy facility to dry out their lumber.
