Boise Cascade ceasing LVL production in Roxboro

22.11.2018 − 

Boise Cascade is to stop making LVL in Roxboro, North Carolina with effect from 31 December. CEO Tom Corrick blamed this decision on its LVL manufacturing costs still not being competitive. However, the site will continue to make I-joists. Boise Cascade had acquired this mill, which specialises in making engineered wood products (EWP), together with an LVL facility in Thorsby, Alabama from Georgia Pacific in March 2016. At that time, the Roxboro site had a listed annual capacity of 5m ft³ of LVL and 80m running feet of I-joists. The Thorsby facility’s LVL capacity had been listed at 4m m³ per year.
