Egger Completes Decorative Paper Saturation Line for Laminate
Lexington, NC, October 13, 2023-Egger Wood Products has completed construction of a $22 million decorative paper saturation line at its Lexington, North Carolina facility, reports Woodworking Network.
“The new line will infuse decorative papers with resin adhesive necessary for thermally fused laminate (TFL) production. The increased capacity will alleviate supply chain issues and logistical costs, while allowing for greater production flexibility to better serve customers in the North American market.
“The local saturation line will therefore reduce the company’s carbon footprint, as well as:
* Allow for greater production flexibility to produce different board sizes and formats, which will better serve the company’s customers in North America
* Provide faster delivery times for the Egger Decorative Collection and custom orders
* Increase capacity to alleviate supply chain issues and logistical costs
“During the past year, nearly $90 million in new investments have been completed at the company’s North American facility, including a third lamination line, a wood recycling center and a third dump trucker-plus the new paper saturation line.”
