Foxworth-Galbraith Lumber Co. closed facilities in San Antonio and Sulphur Springs, Texas; Tucson, Payson and Lakeside, Ariz.; and Pueblo, Colo., the company said in a Dec. 3 memo to employees. "While these changes are painful, they are necessary to align our cost structure with our revenue and demand from our local markets," executives for America's 12th-biggest LBM operation wrote.

The San Antonio shutdown will be completed in mid-January while the Tucson business will close by the end of January, FoxGal said. The operations in Sulphur Springs, Pueblo, Payson and Lakeside conducted their last day of business in early December, with operational shutdown scheduled to be completed by Dec. 31.
