Norbord expands, seeks new employees

CORDELE — An already sizable plant is in the process of a major expansion and opportunities to join the team will be available this week.

Norbord is an international producer of wood-based panels with assets of $1.3 billion. The company employs approximately 2,700 people at 16 plant locations in the United States, Europe and Canada.

The local plant is doubling the size of its Cordele, Georgia Oriented Strand Board (OSB) mill, creating one of the largest OSB operations in the world. This expansion will result in approximately 70 new jobs at the plant.

According to David Fant, HR manager for Norbord Ga. in Cordele, the company chose to expand its Georgia mill for a number of reasons. One of those reasons is the hard working and community-minded citizens of Cordele as well as all of southwest Georgia. Norbord hopes to recruit some of these people at the upcoming job fair.

“Norbord is a great place to work,” Fant said. “Along with our excellent benefit programs, all Norbord Georgia team members participate in a profit sharing plan that has paid out an average of $23,300 per member in the past 3 years.”

The mill is operated by teams that are encouraged to learn and develop and are compensated on a “pay-for-skills” basis.

“We feel that Cordele has many hard working people and we want them to see what a good company Norbord is to work for,” Fant said.

If you are interested in joining the Norbord team, they are hosting a job fair which will be held May 4th, 5th, and 6th at South Georgia Technical College in Cordele.

If you have any questions please call, 229-276-2844.
