MILLERSBURG, OR – Flakeboard Co. Ltd. of Markham, ON, laid off 37 employees at its Duraflake particleboard plant, effective Sept. 25. The company cited the downturn in the housing market for the decision to reduce its workforce by more than 20% and curtail one of two particleboard production lines, according to the AlbanyDemocrat-Herald. Flakeboard purchased the plant from Weyerhaeuser in August 2006.
