Uniboard has announced a $17 million investment in a new state-of-the-art TFL press line at its Sayabec mill in Quebec.
The new press line will feature the same advanced technologies as TFL 6 with an increased capacity for its signature EIR/synchronized (Uniboard’s WoodPrint family of textures) and deep-embossed textures, in addition to all of its melamine texture offerings. This new investment reaffirms Uniboard’s leadership in engineered wood products.
“Rapidly increasing demand for Uniboard’s textured finishes will be supported by this investment,” James N. Hogg, president and CEO of Uniboard said.
“Our investment into TFL 7 underlines Uniboard’s strategy and vision for design, differentiation and growth in thermally fused laminate. TFL 7, as a testament to our success and to our commitment to be the North American leader in TFL design and technology, allows our customers to take the lead with North American sourced TFL.”
Uniboard will preview its new 2019-2020 TFL collection at the IWF Atlanta, Aug. 22-25, as well as at launch events in Montréal and Quebec in September and October.
There will be 18 new designs and two new textures shown, bringing Uniboard’s TFL offering to over 135 leading-edge designs available in 14 texture options.
