Weyerhaeuser (NYSE:WY) said Thursday it will indefinitely close its iLevel Veneer Technologies facility in Colbert, Ga., affecting 105 employees.

“The demand for residential wood products continues to erode and this announcement is a direct result of the business environment we face,” said Cathy Slater, vice president of veneer technologies.

The company laid off the plant’s employees on Oct. 17, but said “ongoing business conditions now require that we take this further action.” Weyerhaeuser employs approximately 875 people at five other Georgia locations.

Weyerhaeuser permanently closed an iLevel veneer plant in Junction City, Ore., in March.
