As follow-up to a story MHProNews posted Feb. 27, 2013 concerning Universal Forest Products, Inc. (UFPI) taking over a former manufactured housing facility in Silverton, Ore., city officials now say UFPI has put those plans on hold. Silverton City Manager Bob Willoughby says the 126,000 square-foot building, once occupied by Redmond Homes, was set to combine UFPI’s operations in McMinnville and Woodburn, Ore. As statesmanjournal reports, the project has been delayed indefinitely, and calls to the company did not elicit a response. UFPI, a major component supplier to the manufactured housing industry, had filed an application with the town’s planning commission that would have created 100 jobs.

As statesmanjournal informs MHProNews, the Silverton (Ore.) Planning Commission voted to approve an application by Universal Forest Products, Inc. (UFPI) to move into the former Champion Homes’ Redman Housing facility in the city’s industrial park. The wood-product manufacturing plant would consolidate operations now being conducted at nearby Woodburn and McMinnville, and would employ 100 people once the plant is readied for production, likely by the fall. Based in Grand Rapids, Mich., UFPI met with nearby residents and city staff members in Dec. 2012 before submitting its application Jan. 18. The building has sat empty for five years. Universal is a component supplier to the manufactured housing industry.
