With roots as a Depression-era sawmill, Roseburg Forest Products has branched out as a diverse producer of wood products. Formed in 1936, the company produces specialty panels (melamine, particleboard, and vinyl laminates), engineered wood products (joists, beams, and rimboards), and plywood products such as siding and concrete forming. Its products are available through dealers, home centers, and wholesale distributors. Roseburg manages around 625,000 acres of timberland in California and southern Oregon. Heirs of philanthropist Kenneth Ford, who established the Ford Family Foundation, own and lead the company.
