Get to Know Us

Go Fast Resaws were originally designed by and marketed by Ken Bricko under the name of Up Country Manufacting in the early 1990’s. The product line provided an affordable alternative to specifically address the issue of slim margins faced by pallet manufacturers. Most resaws and dedusters at were simple over engineered and overpriced. The Go Fast Resaws low profile design coupled with simple straight forward operation made them an instant hit with pallet makers across America and abroad. The reputation for quality, simplicity and durability lead the market to demand a wide capacity thin kerf resaw with a run-around system for the grade lumber market. Upon its release in 1994, the Go Fast Grade Resaw system featured similar production at a fraction of the initial investment when compared to all other thin kerf grade resaws then and now.

After a period of struggle due to market conditions and health related issues the Bricko family decided it was best to pass the reins of the company on and in 2013 Dan Berken, purchased the company. Dan had owned and operated several Go Fast Resaws and DeDusters so he was keenly aware of the quality of the entire Go Fast line. With his many years of experience in the sawmill and pallet industry behind him coupled with a strong eye for business and equipment design, Dan took on the task of modernizing each of the main products offered.
