Wood products company announces expansion in Patrick County
PATRICK COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – Governor Ralph Northam announced on Wednesday that Ten Oaks, LLC – a manufacturer of high-quality residential hardwood floors – will invest more than $ 9 million to build a hardwood sorting at state of the art and stacking facility in Patrick County.
The new plant will allow the company to strengthen its supply chain, optimize the yield of raw materials and improve the quality and efficiency of production while creating a major new market for the hardwood sawmills of Virginia.
The project would create 11 well-paying jobs and lead to the purchase of more than $ 18 million of forest products grown in Virginia over the next three years.
“Ten Oaks’ expansion and continued investment is a reflection of Virginia’s thriving forestry industry. I am grateful to Ten Oaks for their commitment to providing new economic opportunities and valuable, well-paying jobs to Patrick County. ”
Governor Ralph Northam, (D-VA)
The company was established in 2004 in Stuart.
Since then, Ten Oaks has built its reputation on its commitment to quality.
In 2019, the business was acquired by Canadian company Boa-Franc, a leading manufacturer of residential pre-furnished hardwood floors.
The new plant is located less than five miles from its manufacturing center and head office.
The lumber will be used to produce residential hardwood floors.
