FLORIEN, La. (AP) - Boise Cascade will make $43 million in improvements at its plywood mill in the Sabine Parish community of Florien over the next two years.

In return, the company announced Thursday that it will get a break on property taxes on its improvements through the state’s industrial tax exemption program.

The plywood mill employs about 400 people.

Boise Cascade also operates a plywood mill in Oakdale and an engineered wood products mill in Alexandria.
