Starwood Orders Thin-Board Plant

Starwood Orders Thin-Board Plant 

Turkish wood-based materials manufacturer Starwood has ordered its second thin-board plant for the production of thin MDF/HDF to be built near Inegöl. The new plant is designed to run at 2,000 mm/s.

The core of the scope of supply is the continuous press line to be supplied by Siempelkamp. The 9th-generation ContiRoll is 8 ft. x 28.8 m. Besides a flexible infeed, the press is equipped with a hydraulic concept developed for thin and ultra-thin board production and lightweight board package for furniture board production. Also included in the delivery range is a fiber dryer from Siempelkamp subsidiary Büttner, as well as the glue dosing system including Ecoresinator. The Ecoresinator installed in Starwood’s first thin board line in 2010 was the first of its kind and the result of a joint development project between the two companies.

With this plant, Starwood will operate five Siempelkamp continuous press lines—two for particleboard production and three for MDF.

Assembly will start in mid-2021, with the goal to produce the first board is planned for end of 2021.

Bamboo Mill Gains Steam

 

Resource Fiber, a leader in efforts to manufacture commercial bamboo products, plans to establish its first full-scale production plant in Sulligent, Ala. Resource Fiber plans to invest $3.6 million in the Lamar County facility, where it will produce engineered bamboo products such as bamboo nail laminated timbers used in the construction of multi-storied buildings.

Founded in 2011, Resource Fiber has engaged in extensive research and development activities focusing on bamboo products, with six U.S. patents and five U.S. patent applications pending. It has developed bamboo railroad ties and a laminated timber system to replace steel roof and floor decks in commercial buildings.

Resource Fiber CEO David Knight says the company operates the nation’s largest commercial-scale bamboo nursery in Greene County had been looking at nearby locations for its first manufacturing facility. Last year, the company analyzed seven buildings in four Alabama communities. Resource Fiber relocated an experimental pilot facility in Oneida, Tenn. to the Sulligent site in November 2020. The company expects to begin hiring and launch manufacturing at the Alabama facility in the second quarter of 2021.

To make the project possible, Resource Fiber received support from the State of Alabama, which is providing incentives under the Alabama Jobs Act, and the City of Sulligent, which purchased a building it is leasing to the company. The Houston-based Harry E. Bovay Jr. Foundation also provided a grant to facilitate the project. In addition, the company also received a USDA Rural Business Development Grant, administered by the City of Sulligent, to apply towards the purchase of manufacturing equipment.
