Industry News

About 120 workers were affected when Atlanta-based Georgia-Pacific LLC closed its Sterling lumber sawmill in Glynn County, Ga.

The closure was effective Feb. 1.

"Although lumber production at our Sterling Lumber mill was adequate — we continued to have challenges with log procurement and do not foresee improvements in the market to allow for profitable operations," Georgia-Pacific spokesman Rick Kimble said in an email.
