ALCOLU, SOUTH CAROLINA (February 21, 2022) – Georgia-Pacific recently announced a $20 million addition to its oriented strand board (OSB) facility in Alcolu, South Carolina.
The major scope of the project will be to add a third strander to the behemoth facility, which will increase the annual output of quality OSB products by approximately 150 million square feet. Construction on the project is slated to begin in April, and the new addition is scheduled to come on-line in the first quarter of 2023.
“The addition of a third strander has always been in the plans for Clarendon,” said Tobey Elgin, Georgia-Pacific’s Director of Operations for OSB. “The site was originally designed for additional capacity, so adding this third strander will maximize the efficiency and output for the operation.”
