Uniboard is proud to announce an investment of over $53 milliion at its Val-D’or particleboard and thermally fused laminate facility. The investment will increase the productivity of the plant in addition to modernizing key production areas of the val-d’or facility allowing uniboard for better facility as one of the preferred particleboard and thermofused laminate producers in the North American Panel Industry.
Uniboard’s Val-d’Or facility has seen significant growth since its origins dating back to 1976. In 2010, Uniboard invested in a new thermally fused laminate short-cycle press in Val-d’Or to complement its value-added products.
“With today’s announcement, this important modernization project confirms Uniboard’s leadership position in the North American composite panel industry and allows Uniboard to further enhance its offering of engineered wood and value-added products. Over recent years, Uniboard has invested heavily into product development, launching new colour collections including North America’s first registered embossed thermofused laminate panels as well as expanding our successful NU Green® range of low and no-formaldehyde products” said James.
