Wood panels manufacturer, Norbord, is in the final phase of a £25m investment programme at its site at Cowie, Stirlingshire, UK.

The infrastructure investment is intended to improve and extend particleboard operations and will include the replacement of a forming station and pre-press components.

Karl Morris, managing director of Norbord Europe said: “The programme has already involved the installation of a state-of-the-art continuous press which has allowed us to grow our market share in flooring and other construction-related products.

“However, this final stage will provide us with added operating flexibility, a broader product mix, further quality improvements, capacity growth of over10% and a reduction in total manufacturing costs.”
