Georgia-Pacific breaks ground for planned US$135M lumber facility in Georgia

Georgia‐Pacific this week broke ground for planned US$135M lumber facility in Warrenton, Georgia. 

The new 340,000‐square foot facility will replace the current Warrenton plant, originally built in the early 1970s.

“We have a great team at Warrenton and building a new state‐of‐the‐art facility on this site will make it competitive for years to come. The team has earned it,” said Fritz Mason, vice president and general manager, Georgia-Pacific Lumber.

Once in full production in spring 2019, this technologically advanced facility is set to receive approximately 185 truckloads of pine logs a day while producing approximately 350 million board‐feet of lumber per year. The new facility will produce more than three times what the existing facility is able to do.
