EUGENE, Ore. — A Chilean company notified Oregon officials Tuesday that it will shutter a Eugene fiberboard mill and lay off all 84 workers on May 1.

Arauco North America said the closure results from an “economic imbalance” in the U.S. market for medium density fiberboard, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. The company said it will shift Eugene production work to its other U.S. facilities.

Arauco’s layoff is the latest in cutbacks at Oregon employers this year, which include layoffs at Precision Castparts, Blount International, transportation technology company Moovel and loan serving company Mr. Cooper Group.
