Blue Ridge Lumber will create 17 new jobs and invest nearly $2.7 million at the company’s lumber yard in Essex County, Virginia. The company is adding new dry kiln capacity to increase hardwood exports and has committed to purchase more than $5.2 million of Virginia-grown logs and lumber over the next three years.
“The mission of Blue Ridge Lumber is to manufacture and sell quality hardwoods, offering honest value to a global market,” said Blue Ridge Lumber President Thomas Sheets. “This new expansion enables us to expand upon this mission.”
Blue Ridge Lumber has been selling Appalachian hardwoods since 1981, operating six facilities throughout Virginia and exporting products around the world.
