Weyerhaeuser Expands Mill in Right to Work Louisiana

Weyerhaeuser is investing $16.1 million toward improving its current mill in Natchitoches, Louisiana. This will cover replacing old equipment with new and better versions in order to be more productive. This expansion will also create about 20 new jobs over the next few years.

Louisiana’s business climate is the reason that businesses continue to thrive and grow here, creating new opportunities for locals.

From Area Development Magazine:

“This investment reflects Weyerhaeuser’s commitment to the Natchitoches community[. It] is a direct result of the focus of our associates working together to deliver great results. […] We’ve been working on this project for more than a year, and we’re excited for the sustained benefits it will bring to our people, our operation and the community.” […]

“Weyerhaeuser’s impact[…]is visible all across Louisiana, and especially in north-central Louisiana, where the Natchitoches mill is a great economic engine. […]

This latest project modernizes the Weyerhaeuser mill with important new technology. That investment in capital equipment also is an investment in the strong Weyerhaeuser workforce in our state, which will grow in both size and competitiveness with this project.”

“Weyerhaeuser is an important component of the wood products industry, which is a driver of the Central Louisiana economy. […] We applaud their leadership for commitment to the region with the addition of new jobs and capital investment. […] In Central Louisiana: We Make Good Stuff.”
