DR Johnson Restarts Mill after 15 years

The Prairie Wood Products sawmill in Prairie City, Or., officially reopened July 11, nearly 15 years after it was shuttered by owner D.R. Johnson Lumber Co.

Plant manager Tom Moore said the mill initially hired about 25 workers and will add another 15-20 once the planer mill is ready to restart.

As well, the mill’s cogeneration plant may also be brought out of mothballs once “some issues” are worked through, according to Moore.
