A Rogue River plywood mill that had been shut down since 2009 reopened with 105 employees who had been laid off from area mills.

“We’re excited about getting this facility back up and running and being a part again of the Jackson County economy,” [President John] Murphy said.

The mill will produce softwood plywood for construction and industrial applications, including sheathing grades, sanded grades and overlaid products for value-added markets.

“We’ve got to take care of our guys,” Murphy said.
