“North Carolina is a strong producer of wood products,” said Gov. McCrory. “It makes great business sense for Jordan Forest Products to expand here where they’ve been doing business for more than seven decades.”
“North Carolina is proud to call Jordan Lumber one of its strong business partners,” said Sharon Decker, N.C. Secretary of Commerce. “The decision to expand their Montgomery County operations is a sign that the demand for wood products is increasing and North Carolina is the best place for this company to grow.”
