Lumber mill closing in Arlington with 40 jobs lost
Wednesday, February 8, 2012
ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) -- The Northwest Hardwoods lumber mill in Arlington is closing Thursday, putting about 40 people out of work.
A vice president of the Tacoma-based company, Brian Narramore, told The Daily Herald (http://is.gd/fJ36kn) the mill had problems with supply and demand -- a shortage of local timber and a low demand for lumber for new houses.
The sawmill has operated since 1967. It's the second Snohomish County mill to announce its closing in a month. The Seattle-Snohomish mill in Snohomish is shutting down in March.
