Diffenbacher has received an order from Martco, LLC, a Roy O Martin subsidiary for a forming and press line as part of Martco’s recently announced OSB plant to be built in Corrigan, Texas. This new plant is the first major green field project in the North American wood based panel industry in approximately 10 years.
Dieffenbacher’s scope of supply includes a four head forming station, a Belt / Flexoplan® combination forming line and a 12 ft x 26 ft / 14 daylight multi opening hot press. Construction will start on the Corrigan facility in the last half of 2015 and the first board is anticipated in 2017. The plant is the second Martco OSB facility to utilize a Dieffenbacher press line. A similar line is currently operating at the Martco facility in Oakdale, Louisiana, which was commissioned in 2006.
The order further demonstrates Dieffenbacher’s strong presence in the North American composite panel industry. Dieffenbacher has been active in North America since its first installation in 1960 and has over 100 references in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
