Photo essay: A 'low-tech' lumber mill survives automation trend
from Oregon Business
A few miles east of Newport lies the timber town of Toledo, Oregon. At about 3,500 people, the city is nestled in the western slopes of the coastal mountains and has a skyline dominated by the chimneys of the Georgia Pacific paper mill. Directly across the river is a lumber mill called Western Cascade Industries. It’s a small mill compared to others in the state. It’s also an independent, family-owned business owned by Ted Stock. The day-to-day operations are run by Stock’s son, Ross, who gave up a career as a web developer to get into the family business.
