This summer, Georgia-Pacific will shutter its particleboard facilities in Hope, Ar., and Monroeville, Al., and will not rebuild its plant in Thomson, Ga., which was destroyed in a May 29 fire.

G‐P’s particleboard facility in Diboll, Tx., will remain in operation.

The company attributed the closures to flat demand for particleboard and competitors planning new mills that are larger, higher-tech, and more efficient.
