PotlatchDeltic Redoing Waldo
PotlatchDeltic Corp. is investing $131 million to expand and modernize its sawmill located in Waldo, Ark. The project will increase the mill’s annual production capacity from 190MMBF of southern yellow pine dimension lumber to 275MMBF. The company states that the investment will reduce the mill’s operating costs significantly.
“The Waldo investment is an exciting strategic growth opportunity and it will position the mill among the lowest cost producers in the U.S. South,” comments Eric Cremers, President and CEO. “The project reflects our belief that housing fundamentals will remain strong.”
The existing mill will continue to operate during the project. Work on site will begin in the third quarter of 2023 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
PotlatchDeltic owns three sawmills and nearly 950,000 acres of timberland in Arkansas.
