PELICE 2016 Preview
Panel World magazine Managing Editor Dan Shell discusses the upcoming Panel & Engineered Lumber International Conference & Expo (PELICE). Machinery manufacturers and suppliers exhibiting at the 2016 Panel & Engineered Lumber International Conference & Expo (PELICE) April 7-8 in Atlanta report solid current business conditions and good future prospects, despite markets and prices in many panel industry product categories retrenching somewhat after playing “catch-up” coming off the near-unprecedented downturn of almost a decade ago. And while the production gain of 1.2% in 2015 was minimal, North American structural panel production is still coming off its fourth straight year of production increases, according to APA—The Engineered Wood Assn. The 31 billion SF in structural panel production in North America in 2015 included 20.3 billion SF for OSB and 10.7 billion BF for plywood.
