HOQUIAM PLYWOOD BEGINS WEEK-TO-WEEK SHUTDOWN

April 29, 2011

A home building market that is at a 20 to 30 year low and plywood market conditions that are at a 50 year low have forced the shutdown of the Hoquiam Plywood facility. Manager Mark McFeely says the shutdown will impact around 100 employees and will be on a week to week basis. Employees of Hoquiam Plywood were reportedly been told last night that the decision to shutdown had been made and that today was the last day of operation. McFeely says the company attempted to keep up operations, making shipments throughout the country, but “if we’re not moving wood we can’t operate”.
