A Prineville millworking company will get a $3-million facelift beginning later this year.

 

Woodgrain Millwork announced that they would make significant upgrade to its Prineville manufacturing plant.  Russ Deboodt with Economic Development for Prineville and Crook County says it's a big step forward for an industry that has struggled over the past few years.

 

"I think it's a big step forward for that industry here in Prineville. A lot of the other forest products industries kind of have a symbiotic relationship with each other here in Prineville and so when one starts doing well, the others feed off of that and start doing well."

 

DeBoodt says the upgrades will include the purchase of an optimizer, software and equipment to maximize efficiencies within the plant. He adds that the improvements will bring more jobs to the area.
