Idaho Veneer Winds Down

After 67 years of veneer manufacturing, the Malloy family is winding down operations at Idaho Veneer Co. after selling its site in Post Falls, Id. The company got its start when it “plunked down a slicer in the middle of a field in northern Idaho and began slicing knotty Idaho white pine and other species from the Pacific Northwest.

After 67 years of veneer manufacturing, the Malloy family is winding down operations at Idaho Veneer Co. after selling its site in Post Falls, Id.

The company got its start when it “plunked down a slicer in the middle of a field in northern Idaho and began slicing knotty Idaho white pine and other species from the Pacific Northwest.” That once-rural setting is now in the middle of a bustling downtown, so the Malloys have opted to sell to someone who will convert it to its “highest and best use.”

Idaho Veneer is currently wrapping up production and expects to finish selling its remaining veneer inventory by mid-July.
