Great Southern Wood, a supplier of pressure treated lumber and the parent company of the YellaWood brand, will invest $13.7 million in an expansion project at its treatment facility in Mobile County, Ala.

“We have a very strong leadership team and workforce in Mobile, and this expansion makes a strong statement about our ongoing commitment to our team, the Mobile community, and the residential, construction, and industrial markets we serve from this facility,” Jimmy Rane, Great Southern’s founder, president, and CEO, said in a prepared statement.

According to the company, the expansion project will improve the facility’s traffic flow, storage, and ability to process imports and exports through the Port of Mobile. Great Southern Wood produces and distributes appearance-grade, pressure-treated lumber marketed for decks, fences, and landscaping projects under YellaWood and other brands.

The company plans to break ground on the project in January 2023 and anticipates completing the project by the end of February 2024.
