Tafisa Canada, one of the leading particleboard and TFL decorative panel manufacturers, has invested some $62 million in its facilities in Lac-Mégantic. Following an initial $28 million investment, Tafisa officially inaugurated its new 70,000 sq. ft. plant and announced new investments of $34 million to expand its main plant.
A new plant to better serve the market
Dedicated to the production of a collection of lacquered panels called LUMMIA, the new Tafisa plant offers manufacturers and consumers a product with unparalleled characteristics and superior to any other offer currently available. In addition to having the capacity to manufacture two high-end finishes, the plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology unique in North America.
To carry out this major project, Tafisa received the support of various agencies such as:
Sixth TFL line: additional investments of $34 Million
Always striving to better meet future market needs, Tafisa is also expanding its main plant, a project that calls for additional investments of $34 million. The installation of a sixth TFL production line and the expansion of the finished product warehouse are an integral part of this phase of the project.
The new production line will be in operation in the fall of 2023 and will increase the proportion of panels that will be laminated with the ability to produce decorative panels with two-sided synchronized embossing (EIR) texture, improve internal flows and service reliability to North American customers.
These new investments allow Tafisa to offer a comprehensive range of decorative surfaces to industry professionals. Tafisa also offers particleboards, decorative panels (TFL), laminate panels (HPL) and mouldings for the manufacture of cabinet doors, all available under one roof.
“We are very proud of these innovative projects, which will allow Tafisa to continue to distinguish itself in the market, pursue its commitment to its North American customers and offer them innovative and quality products,” says Louis Brassard, chief executive officer of Tafisa.
