ATLANTA -- Georgia-Pacific announced a sales and distribution agreement with Lamco Forest Products for the production of laminated fingerjointed lumber (LFL) products, to be sold under the Georgia-Pacific brand.

Based in Quebec, Lamco says it uses a patented process combining double tongue and groove and fingerjoints to produce the engineered wood structural building products. (See video, courtesy of Lamco.)

"We're looking forward to adding Lamco LFL product to our portfolio," said Paul Watterson, general manager for Georgia-Pacific's engineered lumber business. "It complements our line of I-joist, LVL, rim board and glulam products, as well as adds a product that helps meet fire-related codes being adopted in some of the geographies in which we sell."

Andrew Dingman, Lamco vice president of sales and market development added, "We are proud to work with Georgia-Pacific because of their history of providing high-quality engineered wood products to the construction industry. We look forward to our relationship and helping grow this business by meeting the needs of our customers today and in the future."
