Georgia‐Pacific, Atlanta, Ga., will build a new softwood lumber production facility next to its existing lumber mill in Warren County, Ga.
Construction of the $135-million, 340,000‐sq. ft. plant is scheduled to begin in the summer, with an anticipated startup in spring 2019. G-P’s adjacent sawmill, built in the 1970s, will continue full operations until the new facility is completed. The new mill will offer advanced technology and triple the capacity.
Once in production, the new plant will receive 185 truckloads of pine logs each day and produce about 350 million bd. ft. of lumber annually.
