Alabama company buys sawmill

BROOKHAVEN — An Alabama wood treatment company has completed its acquisition of the former Rex Lumber sawmill in Brookhaven. Terms were not disclosed.

Great Southern Wood Preserving Inc. (GSWP) of Abbeville, Ala., announced that it had completed the acquisition this week. The company will produce its YellaWood pressure-treated lumber at the site.

The company has said it intends to hire 15-20 employees and begin shipping treated lumber from Brookhaven by Feb. 1.

The Brookhaven facility would be GSWP’s 11th wood treatment plant.

GSWP produces pressure-treated pine for decks, fences and landscaping projects.
