GRAYLING – ARAUCO, North America’s leading manufacturer of composite wood panels, announced today that it will invest $20 million to expand its Thermally Fused Lamination (TFL) operations at its state-of-the-art particleboard mill in Grayling, Michigan.
The new lamination line will be ARAUCO’s third TFL line at Grayling and will increase the mill’s lamination capacity more than 50% in support of the Prism TFL decorative surface product offering. The new line is expected to be commissioned and operational in late 2023.
