Tafisa Canada, a leading particleboard and TFL decorative panel manufacturer, remains the manufacturer offering the most comprehensive range of decorative surfaces in North America, as it confirms a total of $62 million in investments in its facilities in Lac-Mégantic, Canada. After a $28 million investment, Tafisa officially inaugurated its new 70,000 sq. ft. plant and announced new investments of $34 million to expand its main plant.
Dedicated to the production of a collection of lacquered panels called LUMMIA, the new Tafisa plant offers manufacturers and consumers a product with unparalleled characteristics and superior to any other offer currently available. In addition to having the capacity to manufacture two high-end finishes, the plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology unique in North America.
Tafisa is also expanding its main plant, a project that calls for additional investments of $34 million. The installation of a sixth TFL production line and the expansion of the finished product warehouse are an integral part of this phase of the project.
The new production line will be in operation in the fall of 2023 and will increase the proportion of panels that will be laminated with the ability to produce decorative panels with two-sided synchronized embossing (EIR) texture, improve internal flows and service reliability to North American customers.
