Roseburg expects to break ground on Roanoke Valley Lumber in the first quarter of 2022 with startup scheduled for later in the year. 

The company said in a press release Friday the new 375,000-square-foot facility located on approximately 200 acres of land in Weldon will bring 137 jobs to the area over the next two years. 

The sawmill will be capable of producing as many as 400 million board feet of dimensional lumber per year, making it one of the highest-capacity mills on the East Coast.

Meanwhile the company said it has leased billboard space in and around the future location of the Roanoke Valley Lumber mill. 

The company has rented a total of three billboards, two of which are up now.

The third will appear in the coming weeks. Current messaging expresses gratitude and excitement to join the community. 

Future messages will contain information about hiring and jobs as construction advances.

The groundbreaking announcement and news of the billboards comes after the company in July announced plans to build the lumber mill in Weldon and a subsequent announcement earlier this month it purchased an additional 30,000 acres of timberland in the northeast region of North Carolina and southeast Virginia.

"This expansion is just another example of our commitment to the Weldon community and investment in the surrounding Halifax County area," Roseburg Senior Vice President of Resources Scott Folk said. "The addition of these high-quality properties to our existing Roanoke Tree Farm allows us to add more scale and operational efficiency to our southeastern timber operations."
