CLARENDON COUNTY, SC — Georgia-Pacific offered state and local officials a look at its new oriented strand board (OSB) plant, which is located in Clarendon County, SC.

The plant has created approximately 130 new jobs in the area and will manufacture OSB products including Georgia-Pacific’s BlueRibbon rated sheathing and sub-floor, Thermostat OSB radiant barrier sheathing, and DryGuard enhanced OSB sub-floor, plus larger panels used in specialty applications.

With lumber and plywood demand up for housing construction remodeling, Georgia-Pacific recently announced a $400 million mill expansion to make its operations more efficient and to increase capacity.
