CORRIGAN, POLK COUNTY - The Polk County Commissioners have approved a ten-year tax abatement for Corrigan OSB LLC’s new $280 million plant, which will have 160 full-time employees, create 1,854 construction jobs and hire 200 truckers.
The company will spend $5 million for a plot of land on the southwest corner of US Hwy. 59 and SH 287. The plant could open as early as 2017, and will use pulp wood from a 55-mile radius around Corrigan.
The company's president told the Polk County commissioners that construction also depends on approvals from Union Pacific, Corrigan-Camden ISD, Entergy and Centerpoint Gas.
