Panel Processing Inc., headquartered in Alpena, Michigan, has recently placed an order for a new short-cycle press line for direct melamine lamination. The laminate press will be located in the Klamath Falls, Oregon, facility that was previously Down River LLC.
Panel Processing of Oregon currently operates a Thermally Fused Melamine line at its Swan Court location in Klamath Falls. The new press, at the Memorial Drive location, will not only complement the current product line, but will also more than double current production. This increased capacity will allow Panel Processing to service more customers and supply a wider range of textures, which are in high demand today. The new press is slated to be delivered in the summer of 2018 and be operational by the end of 2018.
Panel Processing’s National Sales Manager, Brad Matuzak, stated: “We are excited about this upcoming investment. The increased capacity and the expansion of our TFL line will allow us to better serve our current customer base. The additional textures will also allow us to provide to a group that we have been unable to supply before.”
