SAN JOSE, CA -- Pacific States Industries, a leading California-based forest products and building materials company, today announced it has acquired the privately-owned Hoquiam Plywood Company of Hoquiam, Washington. The Hoquiam facility is recognized for its premium plywood sheathing. Operations at the western Washington facility will come under the direction of Pacific States Plywood (PSP), headquartered in Springfield, Oregon.

“For more than 50 years, Hoquiam Plywood has been recognized as a provider of quality plywood products and veneers,” said Sean Burch, PSI general manager. “This acquisition supports our planned growth in the Pacific Northwest and enables us to better serve market demand across the United States and Canada with additional volumes of our high-quality products.”

“We are real happy to get people back to work, we are excited about the company that is acquiring the mill, and we were happy to help them get the street vacation they needed and fast-track everything they needed to have done,” said Jack Durney, Hoquiam mayor. “We were very pleased with the work Greater Grays Harbor, Inc., did to link up the new owners with various training dollars and other opportunities they have to start up a business in the state of Washington, and we think it had a bit to do with helping Pacific States Industry decide to come here. We try to be business-friendly in our town, and we appreciate the help of Greater Grays Harbor.”

Pacific States Industries is a privately-held family-owned company that has been providing quality forest products and building materials to lumber dealers and home improvement stores in California, the Pacific Northwest and nationwide for more than 40 years.
