PILOT ROCK — Woodgrain Millwork Inc. announced it finalized the deal with Boise Cascade to own and operate the sawmills in Pilot Rock and La Grande, and the particleboard operations in Island City.

Woodgrain CEO Kelly Dame said in a written statement the purchases align with the company’s growth strategy. He also stated Woodgrain was “impressed with the caliber of people” who will be joining the company.

Chris Harder, director of Business Oregon, the state’s economic development agency, in the statement said Woodgrain’s purchase is the kind of investment that helps to stabilize and grow rural Oregon economies.

Woodgrain, which manufactures and supplies moulding and other products, has headquarters in Fruitland, Idaho, and 18 operations in the United States, plus a joint venture in Chile. The company resumed full production Monday at three Eastern Oregon plants.
