Huber Engineered Woods has announced that it plans to build a new oriented strand board (OSB) facility in Noxubee county, Mississippi, US. The plant aims to increase the company’s production of ZIP System and AdvanTech structural panels.
The Shuqualak town, Mississippi location will be Huber’s sixth mill in the US. The new mill will expand the company’s current production footprint, which is comprised of five facilities located in Georgia, Maine, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Virginia.
Huber’s manufacturing operations support the growing needs of single-family, multi-family and commercial builders along with select industrial materials markets.
The new facility will produce their panel products that have changed the way homes and multi-family projects achieve air and water management in roof, wall and sub-floor assemblies.
It will be located on approximately 550 acres and will feature a few advanced processes and technologies available for manufacturing operations.
Furthermore, the facility will be designed to minimise its environmental footprint, maximise energy and water efficiency and optimise the utilisation and yield of raw material inputs.
Initiation of project construction is pending various federal, state and local permits as well as economic development incentive approvals and/or processes.
