Uniboard recently announced a CAD$17 million (US$13.21 million) investment in a new state-of-the-art TFL press line at its Sayabec, Quebec, Canada mill. The new press line will feature the same advanced technologies as TFL 6 with an increased capacity for its signature EIR/synchronised 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. Our investment into TFL 7 underlines Uniboard’s strategy and vision for design, differentiation and growth in thermally fused laminate,” James N. Hogg, President and CEO of Uniboard, said. “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 International Woodworking Fair from the 22nd to the 25th of August, 2018 as well as at launch events in Montréal and Quebec in September and October 2018. There will be 18 new designs and two new textures shown, making Uniboard’s TFL collection the most innovative, diversified and comprehensive line of TFL colours and textures available in the North American market. The new launch will bring Uniboard’s TFL offerings to more than 135 leading edge designs available in 14 texture options, most of which have been launched in the last five years.
