Raute Corporation has received an order for LVL lay-up and pressing lines worth almost Euro 20 million from a North-East Asian customer, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The machinery and equipment will be designed and manufactured at Raute’s Nastola and Shanghai plants. The deal also includes modern veneer grading equipment to be installed on the veneer drying line to be delivered by a local supplier. The equipment will be supplied by Raute’s Kajaani (Mecano) and Pullman (Metriguard, USA) units.
The plant where the lines will be installed uses local softwood as its raw material. Timber-frame construction has increased in some North-East Asian developed areas and this investment will significantly increase the structural long LVL production capacity for the area.
Raute is a technology and service company that operates worldwide. Raute’s customers are companies operating in the wood products industry that manufacture veneer, plywood, LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) and sawn timber.
