Georgia-Pacific invests another US$6m in Clarendon plant

31.01.2019 − 

Georgia-Pacific spent some US$6m on its OSB mill in Clarendon, South Carolina in 2018. In a next phase, the site will gain a new laminating line, Georgia-Pacific announced in November. At the same time, the automation system will be modernised and a new 30,000-sqft warehouse will be built. Georgia-Pacific said that it intended to spend a total of approximately US$4.5m on this work.

The company announced that modernising its plant automation system would allow it to switch OSB manufacturing to continuous operations. It will also increase its annual production capacity, which was recently put at 850m sqft (3/8” basis) or approximately 750,000 m³. The company will also start making speciality OSB in Clarendon with the addition of the laminating line. The firm offers laminated OSB under the Thermostat and Forcefield names in this segment. These products have so far been made in Allendale (South Carolina), Fordyce (Arkansas) and Hosford (Florida). Georgia-Pacific also operates two other OSB mills in Brookneal (Virginia) and Engelhart (Ontario, Canada).
