South Carolina Particleboard Plant

Four separate projects combined to make one large plant expansion. Expansion of the facility allowed the plant to grow the capacity of its particleboard and thermally-fused laminate operations. The particleboard expansion will increase by 60 million square-feet annually. These investments will allow the company to meet the growing demand for particleboard and broaden its TFL design offering in the region.

Georgia OSB Plant

This OSB facility in Quitman, Georgia, produces a variety of sheathing, flooring, and specialty products. In 2002, it began a project to replace an aging debarking line. Due to excellent market conditions, the project quickly grew to include (2) debarking lines, new green bins, new heat energy system and environmental controls, (2) new rotary drum dryers, dry screening, a new 8’ wide multi-opening press, and a new finishing line. By the end of the project, capacity at the facility had doubled while maintaining a high degree of uptime due to phased construction and strategic start-up.

West Virginia OSB Facility

Largest OSB facility and the largest in North America when constructed, the greenfield facility was carved out of the hills in rural Heaters, West Virginia. The process design included many groundbreaking technologies including flail debarking, green screening, and four sets of dual drum triple-pass dryers resulting in the industry’s lowest dryer inlet temperatures. The press was the first 12′ wide multi-opening unit in North America.

Alabama LVL & I-Joist Plant

The Thorsby plant uses the LVL from its continuous press to rip up to 80 foot long material which it then uses as the flanges for wooden I-Joists. OSB panels are ripped and fed into the I-Joists assembly system to complete the process. The joists are finally dried in a heated and controlled environment curing room before a “nester-stacker” assembles the packaged I-Joists for shipment. This plant produces I-Joists that can span up to the full 80 feet length to make large open rooms in buildings possible. Joist of 12-inchs in depth and smaller have the same exact sizes as standard lumber to allow for house builders to interchange or mix lighter weight wooden I-Beams with dimension lumber to improve the housing construction process with robust materials at less cost to the home owner.
