OrePac Building Products, Wilsonville, Or., has purchased a 40-acre, 130,000-sq. ft. facility near Roseburg, Or., for the purpose of manufacturing moulding and millwork products.
“OrePac has been committed to being the building industry’s most valued partner for more than 45 years,” said Brad Hart, president and CEO of OrePac. “We looked at MDF’s growing influence in the millwork category and made this investment to meet our customers’ demand for these products.”
OrePac fabricates, assembles, and distributes door and building components at its 10 branches across the western U.S. The project is the first major greenfield investment into a manufacturing capacity for the western U.S.-based supplier.
As part of the deal, OrePac will establish Pacific Manufacturing & Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary, to operate and manage the facility. The company anticipates that the new plant will open sometime in early 2024 and will employ up to 50 people.
The project is squarely located within the OrePac footprint on the I-5 corridor and is ideally situated to benefit the company and its supplier partners by vertically integrating its supply chain. This acquisition marks a major step in the company’s long-term strategic plan to expand its reach and realize its vision to be the top value-added supplier to the shelter industry.
