Lauzon Investment To Increase Wood Yield

Papineauville, Quebec, Canada, Sept. 25, 2012 -- Hardwood maker Lauzon said it is investing $5.2 million to upgrade the plant’s production process by installing scanning systems for the manufacture of high end hardwood flooring.

The technology, developed in Canada, will greatly increase the yield on logs harvested from its forest while maintaining high quality standards.

It will allow Lauzon to increase by more than 50% the yield per tree harvested in the production of hardwood flooring.
