SPRINGFIELD, OR — Timber Products Co. announced that its hardwood plywood mill in Corinth, MS, has been certified to CARB Phase 2 levels to meet the final compliance level of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) formaldehyde requirements.

“With three main facilities producing CARB Phase 2 materials, our customers will not have to worry about ordering the latest certified hardwood plywood,” said Timber Products’ Vice President Roger Rutan. “We are well positioned to supply the market and work through any necessary sell-through provisions.” ??

CARB Phase 2 requirements for veneer core hardwood plywood go into effect Jan. 1, 2010, with lower formaldehyde emission levels.
