Roseburg Forest Products, Springfield, Or., has agreed to purchase the assets of PotlatchDeltic Corp. subsidiary Del-Tin Fiber LLC, including its MDF plant in El Dorado, Ar.
When the deal closes, expected in the first quarter of 2019, El Dorado will be Roseburg’s third MDF plant purchase in three years. It was built in 1998 and features a 9-ft.-wide Kusters continuous press.
“Roseburg is gradually expanding its geographic footprint in North America in high-performing markets with growth potential,” Roseburg president and CEO Grady Mulbery said. “The El Dorado facility in Arkansas will allow us to leverage synergies with our existing southern composite panel plants, while delivering our successful MDF brands to a broader customer base.”
Roseburg currently produces the Arreis, Medite, Medex, Permacore and Fibrlite product lines.
