Travis,
I believe that the plant was located on the Rogue river in Oregon. If you can, do some name searching in the area for sporting goods or outdoors stores and perhaps you can get a clue as to what happened to the equipment.

It is too bad that they have gone out of business In years past, I built on many of their rod blanks and still have several rods based on their blanks. Excellent blanks and really nice folks to deal with.

-----------------
Their plant location was
7062 4th street
White City, Oregon

Looking at the map, it "appears" that the plant is now occupied by a branch of "Boise Cascade Engineered wood"

So, you might call Boise Cascade Corporate real estate and see if you can get any history on the property and the sale of the property and its previous contents. This is really reaching, but if you search, something might show up.

You could also do some research in the White City Oregon for fishing stores, and sporting goods stores who might have information on the sale of the property and the production gear that was at that location.

Go to work Sherlock! See what you can discover.
