SPRINGFIELD, OR – Timber Products Co. announced that three more of its manufacturing facilities have been Chain-of-Custody certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

The mills – Yreka, CA, softwood veneer; White City, OR, softwood plywood; and the Spectrum Division in White City, decorative laminate – earned FSC Mixed Sources Chain-of-Custody certification and brings Timber Products’ total number of FSC-certified sites to five. The company’s Grants Pass, OR, and Corinth, MS, hardwood plywood mills were FSC certified in 2007.

“Last year Timber Products made a commitment to seek certification for several of our manufacturing mills under the FSC program as well as SFI, and we are moving quickly in that direction,” said Timber Products Vice President Roger Rutan. “The market for environmentally friendly products is only going to grow and we feel dual affiliations separates us from the competition and truly shows our dedication to providing a wide variety of wood products that come from sustainably managed forests.”

Currently, the company’s hardwood lumber facility in Munising, MI, is in the process of undergoing FSC Chain-of-Custody certification.
