Port Angeles: K Ply mill back to full capacity, staffing

K Ply Inc. officials said Wednesday all of the Port Angeles plywood mill’s workers laid off in November have returned to work.

K Ply President Ernie Van Ogle said the mill is operating at full capacity and is fully staffed.

Twenty-five people were laid off from various parts of the mill, based on seniority, because of a slowing demand for products the mill produces. All but five of the employees returned to work in January.

The mill produces plywood and treated paper overlays and operates three shifts.
