Egger Plans Third TFL Line

Egger Wood Products will invest $20 million for an additional thermally fused laminate (TFL) production line at the company’s sole U.S. location in Lexington, NC. The company’s Supervisory Board announced the investment, part of completion for Phase I work at the site, after visiting the U.S. plant for its quarterly meeting.

Since September 2020, the facility has been producing particleboard and TFL for use in interior design applications. Scheduled for completion by the end of 2022, the third lamination line will represent a 50% increase in TFL production capacity and shorter lead times for customers.

Carsten Ritterbach, plant manager for commercial services, says, “In light of the supply chain disruptions experienced around the world this year, increasing production capacity is one of the best ways we can serve our customers in the United States and Canada.”
