Weyerhaeuser Relocating Regional Office to Ruston
The City of Ruston and regional partner North Louisiana Economic Partnership are excited to announce that Weyerhaeuser intends to relocate a regional office to Ruston, LA. With this relocation, Weyerhaeuser will bring approximately 20 jobs to the Ruston market. The project will include $1 Million capital investment for a build to suit 7,500 square foot office building, built by a third-party and leased by Weyerhaeuser.
Since merging with Plum Creek Timber Company Inc. in February 2016, the company’s planned synergies included consolidating several offices located across north Louisiana. Ruston was selected in part due to its location and ease of access to their primary markets.
Founded in 1900, Weyerhaeuser has a long and stable history as one of the world’s largest forest products companies. With approximately 14,000 employees worldwide, Weyerhaeuser is a strong corporate and community partner.
“We are so excited for Ruston to be the home of Weyerhaeuser’s new regional office. We know Ruston will be a good fit for their needs,” said Ruston Mayor Ronny Walker. “Having companies like Weyerhaeuser recognize what makes Ruston so special helps put our community on the map for future projects. We look forward to a long history with a company as well-known as Weyerhaeuser. We know they will be a great community partner.”
