Stocks in this article: WY





EVERGREEN, Ala., Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Weyerhaeuser today announced it will begin plans to re-start production on its Trus Joist ® TJI ® joists and Microllam ® LVL lines in Evergreen, Alabama, effective immediately.

The company will be investing capital in the engineered lumber products facility after a four-year closure due to previously weak wood products demand in North America. It also plans to hire 100 new employees at the facility by the end of 2014. Robert (Bob) Doll has been selected as plant manager and will be on site effective Aug. 30, 2013. 

"Customer demand for engineered wood products has improved over the last year and our Evergreen facility is the ideal location to add production capacity of our Trus Joist ® TJI ® Joists and Microllam ® LVL building products," said Jan Marrs, manufacturing manager for Weyerhaeuser Engineered Lumber Products. "With our markets improving and positive support from both the state and local community, we are looking forward to re-starting this facility."

The Evergreen Trus Joist facility was acquired by Weyerhaeuser in 2000 and has an estimated annual production of 2 million cubic feet of Microllam LVL and 120 million lineal feet of TJI Joists.

In Alabama, Weyerhaeuser also operates a lumber manufacturing facility in Millport, a Nursery Tree Improvement Center in Camden and it sustainably manages more than 547,000 acres of timberland in 23 counties.
