Production of particleboard, as well as thermally fused laminate (TFL), will be a major focus for the Lexington plant. Particleboard is usable for a large number of applications and well suited for laminate bonding due to its triple-layer structure with a sturdy core layer and a surface layer composed of finer particles. "With this major milestone, the exciting and challenging journey of this greenfield project will soon come to an end," said Bernhard Vorreiter, technical and production project manager for EGGER. "It is an emotional moment, and our project team is proud to have had the privilege and opportunity to build EGGER's first U.S. plant."
