Huber Engineered Woods Cancels Plans to Build a New OSB Mill in Cohasset, Minnesota

Huber Engineered Woods LLC (HEW), a subsidiary of J.M. Huber Corporation, announced Thursday (2-9-23) that due to delays, it will no longer develop its new oriented strand board (OSB) facility in Cohasset, Minnesota, as originally intended and announced in June 2021.

In a press release, HEW President Brian Carlson said:

“Due to delays that jeopardize our ability to meet product demand deadlines, we will pursue development of our sixth mill in another state. We will be seeking a new location where we can produce critical home building products that are desired by American home builders and homeowners in a timely manner and consistent with Huber’s environmental and social commitments.”
