Last week’s news of the Decorative Panel’s (DPI) plant shutdown was a particularly sad development for Panel Processing, Inc.  For 53 years we have had a special relationship with the Alpena hardboard plant under its various owners. We have worked together on many projects for the mutual benefit of both our companies. This relationship has been so close over the years that many people in our community think we are the same company.  With DPI’s closing we wanted to clarify any confusion; Panel Processing is still open for business. Panel Processing, Inc. was for many years their largest industrial sales customer. Unfortunately, our mutual focuses have changed over the years, and recently we have not purchased many products from DPI. As tragic as this closure is, we also wanted to address any concerns about how our company will be affected. The loss of their supply will not have a significant effect on our company, as the only plant that was purchasing from DPI was our Alpena Plant due to our close proximity. We continue to operate our plants in Claudville, Virginia, Eufaula, Alabama, Klamath Falls, Oregon, Coldwater, Michigan, Holland, Michigan and Alpena, Michigan. 

We wish the best for the employees of DPI and share that Panel Processing is available to help with the orderly shutdown in any way we can.

We unfortunately are not hiring at this time at our Alpena location, but we are willing to accept any resumes for future openings.
