Ainsworth Lumber is gearing up to spend $200 million on an expansion of its oriented strand board (OSB) mill near Grand Prairie. The project will imply an annual increase in production capacity of roughly 600 million square feet and will also include the construction of a hardwood sawmill in Valleyview, AL. Both undertakings are expected to be completed by early 2007.
A second production line at the existing Grand Prairie site is in the expansion plans and it will be able to produce both OSB and other engineered wood products. Once it’s finished, the mill will boast an annual capacity of nearly 1.3 billion square feet.
In addition to boosting capacity, the expansion will also create 300 direct jobs in the Grand Prairie and Valleyview area.
