The former NewWood Corp. plant at Satsop Business Park in Elma.


The Port of Grays Harbor is looking for proposals from potential operators of a former manufacturing plant, including the equipment, at Satsop Business Park in Elma.

The 255,000-square-foot manufacturing plant was once occupied by a business called NewWood Corp.

The company produced polyply, a wood-plastic composite utility board used for fruit bins, pallets, fencing, concrete forms and engineered flooring.

The request for proposals asks the potential operators to identify one of three ways in which they would use the plant:

-As an operator and manufacturer of the NewWood product, using all of the assets and intellectual property.

-As a manufacturer of a different product using some or all of the equipment assets.

-As a manufacturer of a different product using none of the equipment assets.

The proposal deadline is May 30. More information and a copy of the RFP can be found at www.satsop.com.
