Roseburg Forest Products and PotlatchDeltic Corp. announced Wednesday that they have completed the previously announced purchase and sale of the assets of the PotlatchDeltic subsidiary Del-Tin Fiber LLC, including its medium density fiberboard plant in El Dorado.

The two companies reached the $92 million agreement in December. The El Dorado plant employs 105 people.

"The El Dorado MDF plant serves as the third point in Roseburg's North American MDF manufacturing triangle and will play a key role in our continued expansion into the market," Roseburg President and CEO Grady Mulbery said in a news release. "It is located in a region with a healthy wood basket and a robust history of wood products manufacturing. El Dorado MDF is already a profitable operation, and we look forward to seeing what the plant and its employees will do with further investment under long-term ownership."

El Dorado MDF is Roseburg's third MDF plant purchase in the past four years. The company acquired Pembroke MDF in eastern Ontario, Canada, in 2018, and an MDF plant in Medford, Oregon, in 2015.

Privately held Roseburg Forest Products produces particleboard, medium density fiberboard, thermally fused laminates, softwood and hardwood plywood, lumber and other products. It owns more than 600,000 acres of timberland in Oregon, North Carolina and Virginia, as well as an export wood chip terminal facility in Coos Bay, Oregona.

Publicly traded PotlatchDeltic is Real Estate Investment Trust  that owns 2 million acres of timberlands in Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota and Mississippi.
