IFG confirms Blue North mill purchase under way

“Closing is subject to due diligence”

— Idaho Forest Group on Tuesday, May 3, confirmed it is in the process of purchasing Blue North Forest Products, LLC, in Kamiah.

“Closing is subject to due diligence,” said Shannon Fuchs, manager for IFG’s Grangeville mill, “that is likely to be cleared in mid-May.”

Information – such as IFG’s plans for the facility — is limited at this point from IFG, Fuchs explained, until the purchase is completed.

Blue North, a sawmill/planing mill, started operations in 2010, reopening the facility – formerly Three Rivers Mill – that had been closed for three years. IFG is headquartered out of Coeur d’Alene.

Blue North manager Bill Mulligan did not return a call for comment as of press time.
