Scenario/Summary
The Columbia Lumber Products Company (CLPC) was headquartered in Portland, Oregon, where it had been founded in 1899. For many years, its principal product had been only lumber; in the 1940s it began producing plywood, and in 1960, particle board. The first two products, lumber and plywood, were produced at various sites in Oregon, and marketed on the West Coast and as far east as Chicago.
Particle board was produced in Duluth, Minnesota, at a plant built in 1962 with a U.S. Area Redevelopment Administration Loan. Initially, the input to the plant was trimmings and other scrap from CLPC’s Oregon operations. Particle board sales increased so quickly that the Duluth operation consumed not only all of the former waste from CLPC’s Oregon plant but also waste purchased from various lumber and wood products operations in Minnesota and northern Wisconsin.
In terms of product volume, CLPC’s sales doubled between 1960 and 1990. However, nearly all the growth had been in particle board; lumber and plywood sales remained relatively constant (though varying with changes in the home construction industry). In 1996, exports accounted for 9% of CLPC’s sales. Nearly all of this was plywood sold to Japan. Fifteen percent of CLPC’s 1996 purchases were from foreign sources, 5% was mahogany from the Philippines used for plywood veneer, and 10% was wood scrap purchased from Ontario, Canada, for use in CLPC’s Duluth...
