Sierra Pacific Windows is launching a new architectural wall system product line in spring of 2016, following on the heels of its December 30, 2015, asset acquisition from Dallas, Oregon-based Westview Products, Inc.
KronotexUSA and its parent firm Swiss Krono Group will invest $230 million to build a high-density fiberboard mill and expand the company's laminate flooring production in Barnwell County, South Carolina, a move which will create 105 new jobs over the next few years.
Laminate flooring and panel producer Kronospan has entered the U.S. flooring market, acquiring Clarion Boards Inc. and Clarion Laminates LLC. The Shippenville, PA-based Clarion Industries says it is the only fully integrated laminate flooring operation in North America. Based in Austria, Kronospan operates an MDF mill in Alabama.
Roseburg Forest Products will combine the manufacturing and sales functions for its solid wood and composite panel lines as part of its reorganization efforts for 2016. Other areas of the company will remain as currently structured, said incoming President Grady Mulbery. The company also announced a number of promotions.
