Wood shavings company opens Shelton, WA plant

Nestled in the woods between Shelton and Matlock, one local company has been turning out product that is in demand all over the world.

Gem Shavings, a leading provider of packaged dry shavings, bulk shavings and sawdust materials headquartered in Auburn, opened a second plant in Shelton two months ago at the former site of Simpson Lumber’s Mill No. 5.

Since then, owner Jamie Murray estimates that the company ships at least three truckloads, or more than 110,000 pounds, of baled shavings each week, mostly headed to California, where a high density of equestrians use the shavings for bedding material for their horses.
