SPRINGFIELD, OR -- Timber Products Co. finalized the purchase of SierraPine’s Ampine Particleboard facility located in Martel, CA, after a tentative sales agreement was reached in mid-August.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Timber Products to leverage the expertise and capabilities of SierraPine’s particleboard facility with Timber Products’ Medford particleboard operation to serve the growing needs of our customers,” said Timber Products Co. CEO Joe Gonyea, III. “We are pleased to add this manufacturing facility, product line, and team members to our company.”
Lumber producer Sierra Pacific Industries gave $6 million and Plum Creek donated $1 million to the College of Forestry at Oregon State University.
Going forward the Martell facility will operate as “Ampine, a Division of Timber Products Company.”
Additionally, Timber Products announced that Jeff Johnson, formerly president of SierraPine, will join the company as vice president of Composite Panels to lead the charge of integrating particleboard operations.
Founded in 1918 in Medford, Oregon, Timber Products Company manufactures a wide range of environmentally certified hardwood plywood and decorative panels that are used by kitchen cabinet, store fixture, decorative millwork and furniture producers.
