    Weyerhaeuser closes two Oregon plants
    December
    2006 — Eugene (OR): Weyerhaeuser will permanently close two veneer
    technologies manufacturing operations in Oregon, effective immediately.
    The two shutdowns, a plywood mill in Springfield and a veneer plant in
    Coburg, will affect more than 100 people.Cathy Slater, vice president
    of veneer technologies, said: “Weyerhaeuser made the difficult decision
    after a strategic review of the company’s veneer business.”She
    continued: “There’s a shrinking demand for plywood panels because of
    the decline in housing starts and the increase availability of
    alternative products. After careful consideration of all the options, a
    decision was made to close the two facilities.”The company will provide
    the affected employees with severance pay and continuation of health
    care benefits, as well as job-transition services and counselling,
    consistent with company policy and the applicable union agreement.
