LAVAL, Que.—Quebec-based wood product maker Uniboard is investing $3-million to increase thermally fused melamine (TFM) capacity and improve efficiency at its Sayabec, Que., operations.
The Company’s Sayabec plant, which Uniboard claims is already one of North America’s most efficient and flexible thermally fused melamine producers, will see investments in its TFM press #3 production line.
Work will begin in the fourth quarter of 2012, the company announced, with an expected completion of January 2013.
The upgrades will provide increased capacity to supply a wider range of finishes, such as the recently-launched RIO and High Gloss finishes to meet growing demand, according to Uniboard.
“This investment not only increases our thermally fused melamine capacity but will also keep us at the leading edge of technology,” Uniboard president and CEO James Hogg said in a statement.
