MONTREAL, QC — Tembec Inc. said it plans to invest $25 million to triple the production capacity of its laminated veneer lumber mill (LVL) in the Abitibi-Temiscamingue region of Quebec. By doing so, the company expects to capture a greater share of the growing market for LVL products in the United States and Eastern Canada, said Frank A. Dottori, president and chief executive officer. “This additional capacity will ensure our ability to meet the growth in demand we are experiencing with this product.” He added, “By combining our newest, most resource-efficient technology with our Aspen wood supply, we are able to convert more of each log into high value products.” LVL is one of several engineered wood products that are increasingly being used in such areas as building of houses and manufacturing of I-beams. Construction of the mill is planned for late 2000, and it could start operating by the spring of 2001.
