Santiago, Chile-based Masisa is disposing of its door assembly plant in Chill├ín along with the door components line at the group’s industrial complex in Cabrero allow it to focus on its main wood board business.

The Chilean group, which runs panel mills across Latin America, has announced a US$216m investment programme with capacity and other projects in Chile, Brazil and Mexico this year.

"Masisa’s decision to sell the doors is in line with its focus on the core and allied business of producing and marketing wood panels for the furniture and interior fittings sectors in Latin America , which offers attractive growth opportunities in our existing markets," explained Jaime Valenzuela, ceo of Masisa Andina.
