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.

KTBS-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Cuuhqr ) Boise Cascade will replace two dryers at the plant and increase the plant’s capacity for manufacturing veneer products and add log yard storage space.

The plywood mill employs about 400 people.

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