WOODLAND, WA- Builders FirstSource announced today that it will be hosting a two-day hiring blitz for its Woodland Truss Plant that is slated to open early next month. This is the company’s fourth truss manufacturing location in Washington State and the second Cowlitz County location, joining the Longview Lumberyard to supply contractors and home remodelers throughout Southwest Washington.
The company is looking to fill approximately 30 positions initially, including material handlers, saw operators, truss assemblers, and CDL truck and crane operators. The hiring blitz will be November 21 and 22 from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm at the new truss plant located at 1930 Schurman Way in Woodland.
“We are thrilled to be opening this new facility and opening up more new jobs to the Woodland community,” said John Hoch, Oregon and Southwest Washington area manager for Builders FirstSource. “This project has been a great example of local professionals working together to bring the project to completion. Those instrumental were civil engineers Gibbs and Olson, The Collins Architectural Group, and general contractor JH Kelly, along with numerous local subcontractors and service providers. All involved understood the local requirements and were instrumental in working with City of Woodland and Cowlitz County building officials to bring this project together in a coordinated effort.”
The Woodland truss plant facility will design, engineer, and manufacture quality wood roof and floor trusses custom made for single-family, multifamily, agricultural, and commercial building projects of all sizes throughout Southwest Washington. Designed, cut, and assembled using the latest technologies in a controlled environment, wood trusses save contractors time and money on projects while at the same time improving structural performance.
