Murphy Company Comes To Rogue River City, Oregon

 Rogue River City

The Murphy Company of Eugene, Oregon has purchased the former Panel Products mill that has sat alongside the I-5 freeway at Rogue River City.

While the states' economy has suffered severely, the Murphy Company has been waiting for good opportunities for future growth.

Company president, John Murphy, said this acquisition will help his company immensely, as he was able to purchase the plants' equipment for less than half the price of new equipment.

The Murphy Log Conversion plant is only 20 miles away in White City, and they will supply veneer to the Rogue River City plant.

This Rogue River City plant sits on 51 acres and has a 164,000 square foot building.

Larry Holzgang, who is a State of Oregon business development officer said, "This company is very important to Rogue River City, and the surrounding communities."

Murphy has a "state of the art" plywood mill in Sutherlin, Oregon which employs 70 people, a hardwood plant in Eugene, Oregon which employs 200 people, and plants in White City, Oregon, and Elma, Washington, each with about 60 employees.

The Rogue River City operation will employ between 135 and 150 people when they are up and running.

According to sources, John Murphy expects the market to remain relatively flat for another year, but still plans to open the Rogue River City operation within a couple of months.

Since Rogue River City is home of the "National Rooster Crow" contest, now they'll have even more to crow about.

Thanks for your comments Jim.  I've heard only good things about the Murphy Company and am glad they will be providing some very needed jobs for Southern Oregon.
