Late last week, Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) announced its acquisition of Seneca and its affiliates is now complete. First announced in August, the combination of these two companies positions SPI as a “West Coast forest products leader with more than 2.3 million acres of sustainably managed timberlands, 18 sawmills and eight renewable biomass energy cogeneration facilities, along with millwork and windows operations,” company officials said.

Founded in 1953, Seneca operated a 175,000-acre sustainably managed tree farm, sawmills, and a biomass plant in Oregon.

“This is a meaningful day for Sierra Pacific Industries, as well as for Seneca,” said SPI President George Emmerson. “The combined company brings together an outstanding team of people that will leverage our shared expertise in sustainable forest management and innovation in manufacturing, working together to provide quality lumber and wood products to the marketplace. We are excited to be joining the Oregon forest products industry, along with the opportunities for further growth in the state.”
