Raute to deliver LVL line in USA

08/08/2017 - 11:01 AM

Finland’s Raute Corporation has received an order worth over EUR 11 million for an LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) layup line for Roseburg Forest Products, Inc. (RFP) of Roseburg, Oregon, USA.

The order consists of a high capacity LVL layup line and will be delivered to RFP's new LVL mill in Chester, South Carolina, USA in late 2018. The capacity of RFP's new LVL mill will be 285,000 m3 per year and will be one of the largest single capacity LVL lines in the world. The equipment will be engineered and produced in Raute's North American unit in Delta, Vancouver area, Canada.

The cooperation between RFP and Raute has continued for many years. Raute has delivered projects of various sizes to RFP's plywood and LVL mills. The largest project was RFP's first LVL line in Roseburg, Oregon, USA delivered in the year 2000.

The demand for LVL in the USA has been growing steadily in recent years. By building this new LVL mill Roseburg will be responding to that demand and intends to maintain their strong market position. Raute was selected as the supplier for the LVL layup line because of its extensive experience from earlier deliveries as well as Raute's leading LVL process technology.
