Springfield, Ore. – Roseburg announced today (Nov. 15, 2019) indefinite layoffs at its Dillard Plywood plant, due to continued unfavorable conditions in the North American plywood market. Nearly all affected employees received immediate job offers at other Roseburg facilities.
The layoffs affect approximately 30 Dillard Plywood employees, 97% of whom received job offers at Roseburg’s other plants in Dillard and Riddle, Ore. The remaining affected employees were invited to interview for roles at other Roseburg facilities this coming Monday, Nov. 18.
Roseburg knows this is difficult news for our team members and their families. The company has pledged to work with all those affected, with the goal of placing them as soon as possible.
An earlier round of layoffs occurred at the Dillard Plywood plant in August, also due to unfavorable conditions in the domestic plywood market. Nearly every affected employee who wished to continue working for Roseburg has been placed at another Roseburg facility since the earlier announcement.
Operations at other Roseburg facilities, including plywood plants in Riddle and Coquille, Ore., will continue as usual.
