CORDELE, GA (WALB) - A Crisp County wood manufacturer is back in production after having to shut down for a month. All 200 employees at the Norbord plant are back to working full-time after the plant shut down December 15th.

The plant's Human Resources Director said the main reason for the shutdown was to be able to adjust inventory.

None of the employees in Cordele are expected to be laid-off despite Norbord's announcement to shut down their Alabama plant.

A full shift at the Cordele plant was laid-off back in October because of reduced production needs blamed on the housing slump.

The Cordele plant is the second largest Oriented Strand Board product producer in the country.
