PENINSULA: Defense contract may mean work for Clallam mill


PORT ANGELES — A Clallam County mill is expected to benefit from a $13.2 million defense contract awarded last week to a specialty wood products company based in Portland, Ore.

Under the Defense Supply Center contract awarded to Sylvan Forest Products, a Clallam County mill will be retained to provide plywood to various military stations in the Northwest.

Sylvan executive Cindy Blackman said the company hopes to retain KPLY Inc. of Port Angeles.

Blackman said the amount of plywood to be supplied by a Clallam County mill has yet to be determined.

The $13.2 million Defense Supply Center contract, issued in Philadelphia, is expected to be completed by July 18, 2002.
