Wood panel manufacturer, Norbord, has celebrated Sterling OSB’s 30th anniversary with a party at its Inverness plant.

The UK manufacturer of engineered wood products marked this incredible milestone with a celebration for all employees, including retired employees and their families on Saturday 6th June.

The company created a playground for children with a bouncy castle, bungee run, inflatable slide and a colouring competition. The adults were able to tour the mill and see the changes that have been introduced over the years.

Jerry Jones, site manager of Norbord’s Morayhill plant, says: “Over the last 30 years, we have witnessed many changes, and have always remained at the heart of the Inverness community as well as being the UK’s number one OSB supplier.

“Our incredible staff here at Morayhill are what makes our company so successful. Their dedication and spirit has been unfailing and has made us a stronger company as a result.

“We have forged strong community relationships and grown to become one of the largest employers in the area, so we thought a celebration for the whole family to join in would be the perfect way to celebrate this milestone. I hope everyone had as much fun as we did and look forward to further developments at Norbord in the future.”

The Morayhill plant, which produces Sterling OSB (oriented strand board), opened in 1985 and has grown into one of the largest employers in the area. In addition, Norbord has become a valuable contributor to the regional economy, forging more than 1000 close business links with associated businesses across the north of Scotland.
