UNIBOARD® INVESTS $18 MILLION TO INCREASE MDF PRODUCTION CAPACITY AT ITS MONT-LAURIER FACILITY

Laval, Quebec – April 15, 2019 – Building on the success of the recent Microwave project with a 7-million-dollar investment in 2016, Uniboard announces an $18 million investment to further modernize and expand its plant at Mont Laurier.
 
Continuing on the theme of innovation, the new dryer configuration will use the state-of-the art technology and connect with Uniboard’s innovative gas treatment system. The project leverages proprietary expertise in clean air technology and reduction of green-house gas emissions. This new process will significantly reduce the company’s CO2 emissions, in addition to increasing the plant’s production capacity.
 
‘’Innovation in our production processes is a key element of Uniboard’s approach to operational excellence. With this investment we are continuing our commitment to growth as demonstrated also by our recent modernization and expansion announcements at Val-d’Or and Sayabec,’’ underlines James N. Hogg, President and CEO of Uniboard.
 
‘’The upgrade to a new generation dryer will not only allow us to increase productivity but also to further the positioning of our plant as the leader in MDF in North America,’’ adds Sebastien Coté, plant director of Uniboard Mont-Laurier.
 
Uniboard’s Mont Laurier’s MDF is renowned for its outstanding properties and its adapted solutions with such grades as Excel+®, Excel and NU Green®. Mont-Laurier’s MDF is also the substrate for Uniboard’s industry leading thermally fused laminate (TFL) line available throughout North America.
