Out of crisis came an opportunity for the Natchez, MS area, when Georgia-Pacific reopened its Roxie sawmill and its plywood facility at Gloster. After being closed for three years, Hurricane Katrina, and the damaged timber it left in its wake, prompted the facilities to reopen their doors.

Roughly 500 people are now working at the two locations, the Natchez Democrat has reported, as Georgia-Pacific scrambled to start harvesting some of the $1.3 billion worth of timber.

Both facilities are currently operating at full capacity, and will continue to do so in the New Year.

The Natchez Democrat further reported that maintenance done on the mills during the time they were idle made quick start-ups much easier.
