Roseburg Forest Products has sold its Oxford, Miss., plant to Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces. The transaction closed Feb. 7.
Under Roseburg, the plant produced thermally fused melamine laminates for high-end office furniture. The plant closed in December 2015 after the loss of a key customer.
“The decision to close the Oxford plant was a difficult one, so it’s great to see it come back to life as a result of this deal,” said Mark Avery, Roseburg’s Vice President of Composites Business. “The plant’s reopening will be good for that community, and hopefully some of our former employees will find work with Wilsonart.”
Roseburg originally purchased the plant from Georgia-Pacific in 2006.
