Plywood panel maker Natron Wood’s new Louisville plant to hire 200

Oregon-based plywood panel producer Natron Wood Products is moving into a vacant 250,000 square-foot building in Louisville and will create 200 new jobs as it begins operations.

The plant represents a $10 million investment by Natron Wood Products, Gov. Phil Bryant said Monday at an official announcement of the plant in Louisville.

Natron Wood’s Winston County facility will produce specialty plywood products, such as plywood overlay panels, which are commonly referred to as Medium Density Overlay and High Density Overlay. The panels are used primarily in large vertical and horizontal concrete structures and other residential and commercial construction applications. The facility will also produce high-grade marine plywood and sanded plywood products.

Natron Wood Products operates as Jasper Wood Products in Jasper, Ore., where the company has been in business for more than 20 years. There, the company produces a number of timber products, including marine plywood, millworks, plyform for heavy concrete pours and interior and exterior fire retardant treating.
