The company recently brought online a state-of-the-art sawmill in Shelton, Washington. The Shelton mill can produce 500 million board feet of two-by-fours, two-by-sixes, and four-by-fours annually and is the latest addition to a list of plants that includes 14 sawmills, 3 millwork-and-remanufacturing plants, 3 window-and-door plants, and a bark-and-chip plant. The company also operates seven biomass cogeneration energy plants that turn “wood waste” into more than 150 megawatts of electrical power for homes and businesses.
