GP Makes Commitment To Gurdon Mills, Community

Georgia-Pacific is investing $70 million in upgrades at its lumber and plywood operations in Gurdon, Ark. Some of the improvements include an advanced merchandiser, new panel assembly stations with state-of-the-art scanning systems, an upgraded power plant and software and security enhancements.
