Georgia-Pacific Invests $37 Million in Gurdon, Arkansas, Lumber Operations

Georgia-Pacific announced plans to invest $37 million at its Gurdon, Arkansas, lumber operations to expand the production capacity of the lumber mill by approximately 60% and position the facility for long-term success. Improvements at the lumber mill include the installation of a new continuous dry kiln and a planer mill, along with related infrastructure improvements. Project completion is expected by the third quarter of 2015. The company is also evaluating additional investments, totaling approximately $20 million, at the nearby Gurdon plywood mill that would increase the mill's efficiency and capacity, as well as further reduce air emissions.

Georgia-Pacific Plans Investments at Madison Plywood Facility to Total $65 Million

Georgia-Pacific is investing in its Madison, Georgia, plywood operations, with recent and planned investments expected to total $65 million. This includes a planned $26 million upgrade to the mill's veneer dryers that will increase drying capacity by approximately 35%. Project completion is expected by the third quarter of 2015. This follows the replacement of the mill's wood yard in June totaling approximately $19 million. Plans are also underway to modernize other equipment at the Madison facility, which would total approximately $20 million and include an upgrade of a lathe and expansion of a glue line and pressing operations. Decisions for those investments are anticipated to be made before the end of 2014. The company is also evaluating the potential restart of an idled plywood mill either in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida or North Carolina. Potential restart of an idled operation will be determined by market conditions, access to wood supply, an engineering analysis for required permitting, installation of equipment and facility upgrades. Following review and site selection, a restart could occur in the fourth quarter of 2015.
