Roseburg plans extensive investment

 Tuesday, August 31, 2021

Roseburg plans extensive investment in growth-oriented operations in the western operations. The team has recently announced a multi-million dollar investment plan in new technology at the western manufacturing operations after conducting an extensive analysis of strategic business opportunities in the region. They have focussed on restructuring of the entire system and decided to close the existing particleboard plant in Dillard, Ore and provide job opportunities to the employees elsewhere.

“The decision to stop production at a facility is never easy, and these transitions have significant impact on the people involved,” Roseburg Senior Vice President of Operations Jake Elston said. “We have already begun working with our current team members on this upcoming transition to identify other opportunities within the organization.”

Roseburg undertook an extensive study of strategic investment opportunities to enhance its integrated business model in the west.

“The analysis led to the decision to close Dillard Composites and look toward the investment, growth, and continued modernization of our western integrated business model,” Roseburg President and CEO Grady Mulbery said. “The coming investment in automated technology will create a more competitive business and allow us to maintain a robust, long-term presence in Douglas County, the state, and the industry as a whole.”
