Uniboard Invests in Val-d’Or facility
Uniboard announced an investment of $38.5 million to its Val-d’Or facility. This is the second phase of a major upgrade project to build a particleboard and thermally fused laminate (TFL) facility in Val-d’Or.
The modernization will focus on screening, sifting, milling and intermediary storage equipment, which will lay the foundation for the following phases of upgrading the Val-d’Or press and finishing lines. Uniboard previously invested $53 million in the facility in 2017.
“We are building on 40 years of success in Val-d’Or and raising the bar again. We are taking the next step-up at Val-d’Or so that our customers throughout North America will continue to be well served for the next 40 years”, said James N. Hogg, President and CEO, Uniboard. “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.”
