Boise Cascade is hiring again

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Boise Cascade announced Jan. 17 that it was adding 40 positions to its Western Oregon Region mills in Medford, White City and Willamina, according to an article in the Oregon Mail Tribune.

Company spokesman R.J. Roberts told the newspaper that the Idaho-based wood products supplier has increased market share for its plywood and engineered wood panels, both in domestic and Canadian markets.

"The current markets for our wood products, and the recent upturn in demand for the products we make using the veneer produced in our mills, have necessitated this hiring," Roberts said.

Supply is also tightening. Georgia-Pacific closed two Southern pine plywood plants, in Crossett, Ark. and in Hawthorne, Fla. last year. Then Latin American panel maker Celulosa Arauco experienced a fire in early January, halting production. Rebuilding efforts are estimated to take two years.

Roberts acknowledged that Boise’s market share gains, which include new contracts with Home Depot and some Canadian companies, came at the expense of competitors.

Realtors point to market in recovery mode

BY Ken Clark

Existing-home sales increased to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.61 million in December, up 5.0% from a downwardly revised November.

The results released Friday morning by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) marked the third consecutive month of existing-home sales gains. The latest figure from December is also 3.6% higher than the 4.45 million-unit level reported in December 2010.

“The pattern of home sales in recent months demonstrates a market in recovery,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist. “Record-low mortgage interest rates, job growth and bargain home prices are giving more consumers the confidence they need to enter the market.”

For the full year 2011, existing-home sales increased 1.7% to 4.26 million, the NAR reported.

Regionally, existing-home sales in the Northeast jumped 10.7% to an annual pace of 620,000 in December and are 3.3% above a year ago. The median price in the Northeast was $231,300, which is 2.7% below December 2010.

Existing-home sales in the Midwest rose 8.3% in December to a level of 1.04 million and are 9.5% above December 2010. The median price in the Midwest was $129,100, down 7.9% from a year ago.

In the South, existing-home sales increased 2.9% to an annual level of 1.76 million in December and are 3.5% above a year ago. The median price in the South was $146,900, down 1.1% from December 2010.

Existing-home sales in the West rose 2.6% to an annual pace of 1.19 million in December but are 0.8% below December 2010. The median price in the West was $205,200, up 0.3% from a year ago.
