EUGENE, Oregon – Sierra Pacific Industries plans to make significant investments at their existing Eugene manufacturing site, building a new cutting mill and a state-of-the art-stud mill to replace the existing sawmilling facilities. When complete, it’s expected the Eugene complex will be one of the largest in the U.S with an annual production capacity of 650 million board feet, compared with the existing capacity of over 350 million board feet. The new facility is expected to continue to employ the over 300 people who work at the Eugene site, in addition to supporting many other indirect jobs. “Sierra Pacific is energized about this opportunity,” said Todd Payne, SPI’s President of Lumber. The new sawmill project timeline estimates completion between 2025 and 2026.
