BOISE, Idaho - Boise Cascade, an Idaho-based lumber producer, will sell its lumbermill in Pilot Rock and La Grande, Oregon and its particleboard operations in Island City to Woodgrain Millwork. Idaho-based Woodgrain operates in 18 facilities around the U.S., manufacturing wooden doors, mouldings, and windows.
The sale does not include Boise's plywood mill and log utilization center in Elgin, Oregon.
"The sale to Woodgrain allows us to further focus on our veneer-based engineered wood products and plywood businesses," said Mike Brown, senior vice president of operations, Boise Cascade Wood Products division. "Woodgrain is a family-owned company with a solid reputation in the industry. The products manufactured at these northeast Oregon facilities are a good fit with their business strategy."

The details of the agreement were not disclosed and the transaction is contingent upon the results of the due diligence process, which is expected to take approximately 60 days.
Boise Cascade is one of the largest producers of engineered wood products and plywood in North America and a leading U.S. wholesale distributor of building products.
Woodgrain Millwork is based in Fruitland, Idaho and has operations in 18 locations around the United States, in addition to a joint venture in Chile. One of the largest millwork operations in the world, Woodgrain has provided wood doors, mouldings and windows since 1954.
