OMAK, Okanogan County — Omak Wood Products said it expects to reopen the plywood mill in Omak later this year. The mill closed in 2009, and the company is the new operator.
Omak Wood Products last month hired about 40 laborers and specialized tradesmen to clean up and restore the equipment. The company expects to employ as many as 100 workers by year end. At full production, the plant could employ as many as 200 people.
