Weyerhaeuser restarts Alabama sawmill

Aug 26. 2013, Evergreen, Alabama - Weyerhaeuser is restarting a mill in Alabama that had been mothballed for four years, hiring 100 employees over the next few months.

The company credits the improved housing market for boosting demand for its engineered wood products. Weyerhaeuser's profits more than doubled in 2013 Q2, as reported in July. The company has benefited from higher sales and stronger margins in recent months.
