Roseburg to acquire Pembroke MDF in Ontario

12 March 2018

Oregon-based Roseburg Forest Products recently reached an agreement in principle with Pembroke MDF, Inc to purchase Pembroke’s MDF and molding production facilities located in northeastern Ontario, Canada.

The acquisition will be Roseburg's first international purchase and will continue the company's expansion throughout North America.

Roseburg is currently building an engineered wood products plant in Chester, South Carolina and recently acquired 158,000 acres of timberland in Virginia and North Carolina.

"The Pembroke plant and its employees present untapped potential that can be used to better serve existing and future customers of our innovative and versatile MDF product line," said Mark Avery, Roseburg senior vice president of Industrial Products and National Accounts. "It's an exciting opportunity for Roseburg to move into the northeastern region and further diversify our operations and meet demand."

Roseburg currently owns and operates an MDF plant in Medford, Oregon which produces the company’s Arreis, Medite, Medex, Permacore and Fibrlite product lines.
