Finnish technology and service company Raute has received an order worth over 11 million euros for an LVL layup line for Roseburg Forest Products.
The order comprises a very high capacity LVL (short for laminated veneer lumber ) layup line, which will be delivered to RFP’s new LVL mill in Chester, South Carolina late next year. It will be one of the largest capacity single LVL lines in the world.
The equipment will be produced in Raute ‘s North American unit in Delta, Vancouver area, Canada.
RFP and Raute have collaborated for many years, as Raute has delivered projects of various sizes to RFP’s plywood and LVL mills. The demand for LVL in the US has been increasing in recent years, and by building the new mill, Roseburg is intending to maintain its strong position in the market.
