Interfor to Sell Gilchrist, Oregon Specialty Sawmill
Interfor Corporation plans to sell its specialty sawmill located in Gilchrist, OR, to Neiman Enterprises Inc. The Gilchrist sawmill, which specializes in ponderosa and lodgepole pine boards, has been curtailed since mid-June of this year due to COVID-19 related economic factors. Prior to its curtailment, the mill produced approximately 80 million board feet of lumber per year. Neiman, based in Hulett, WY, is a privately held, third-generation family business with pine board sawmill operations in Wyoming and South Dakota and a stud mill in Colorado. Neiman intends to restart the mill in the near future.
