Georgia Pacific Closing Plywood Plant

One hundred sixty Georgia Pacific workers in Savannah are looking for new jobs. The company is selling its hardwood plywood facility on Old Louisville Road. The plant makes hardwood products for furniture and cabinets.

Over the last few years, Georgia Pacific says smaller import producers have been dominating the market, making it too difficult for them to compete.

The plant will continue to operate through mid-June. They're offering all employees severance packages and help finding other jobs.

Some may be reassigned within the company.
