Georgia-Pacific Investing up to $70 million at Arkansas Plywood and Lumber Complex

Georgia-Pacific will invest up to $70 million to upgrade its plywood and lumber operations in Arkansas, adding advanced technology and systems, and helping sustain more than 700 jobs at the Arkansas Plywood and Lumber Complex.

“We are making state-of-the-art improvements that will transform our Gurdon facilities, greatly improving the utilization of raw materials and overall operating efficiencies, making jobs more meaningful, and turning us into an even stronger competitor,” said Mike White, Georgia-Pacific Western Regional Operations Manager.

Some of the improvements include the install of an advanced merchandiser that determines best end-product use, new panel assembly stations with state-of-the-art scanning systems, an upgraded power plant, and software and security enhancements. Work on the projects began earlier this summer and will be completed by 2020.
